Council undertakes a range of roles and activities that support community health, social and environmental wellbeing.
According to research undertaken as part of the strategic plan Warrnambool: A Healthy City 2013-17, the indicators of community connection and strength
are very positive.
Residents generally feel part of the community, volunteer in various community organisations and feel safe on the streets.
The Warrnambool community also has a higher rate of participation in cultural and arts events or activities compared to other areas in the Great South Coast region.
