Senior Citizens & Disability Services
Council offers a range of services to Senior Citizens and Disabled persons in Narrabri Shire and values them as important members of our community.
For Senior Citizens there are a range of community groups and clubs in Narrabri Shire to help this group form friendships and keep active in the community.
There are aged care facilities in the three major towns of Narrabri, Boggabri and Wee Waa. These facilities are in easy access or are adjoining the hospitals or health centres in these towns. There is also a range of Home and Community Care for those who wish to remain in their homes and maintain their independence.

The new Narrabri Aquatic Centre has a range of services for people with mobility issues. Swimming and water based activities improve quality of life through improved flexibility, mobility and cardiovascular fitness. Narrabri Aquatic Centre has two options to allow persons with mobility issues access into the indoor swimming pool. There is a ramp into the water and a new portable BluOne lift for those less mobile. A brochure below explains more about the options.
In 2017, Council developed a Disability Inclusion Action Plan to assist with planning to make our community more accessible into the future. This plan and further detail can be found at the following link.

In 2022, automated doors were installed at The Crossing Theatre and Narrabri Region Visitor Information Centre, with thanks to funding received through the NSW Government’s 2021 Community Building Partnership Program.
