Listening To Our Website

Trouble hearing? Trouble speaking? You can make contact with Council

In order to be accessible to people who are deaf or have a hearing or speech impairment, the City of Ballarat is adopting the uses of the National Relay Service.
The National Relay Service (NRS) is an Australian Government initiative that helps people with hearing and speech impairments to contact organisations or individuals by phone.
