Ararat Rural City Council listens carefully to its communities.

In particular, it is intent on hearing what local people have to say about improving their community to achieve greater social and economic wellbeing.

By forming a relationship with Council, communities open the door to better understanding Council processes, accessing government funding, and networking with businesses, philanthropic trusts, and other community organisations.

Council can also help communities identify their assets and strengths, as well as enhance their opportunities through effective planning and prioritising.

By combining the energy, ideas and financial strength from Council and other resources, communities can achieve their goals.
