Programs & Services

Council offers a number of programs and services to assist and support those who are living with disability in the City of Logan.

Art + Dementia Program

Art + Dementia is a discussion-based tour of works of art to provide intellectual stimulation and social inclusion for people with dementia and their companions. Facilitated by our trained volunteers, the participants are encouraged to contribute knowledge, engage in interpretation, express emotions and recall memories. Involvement in this nationwide program has been shown to increase well-being and quality of life for participants.

If you or someone you know would benefit from this program, please contact Logan Art Gallery on 3412 5519 or via email artgallery@logan.qld.gov.au.

Home Dialysis and Medical Treatment Water Concessions

Customers who require home dialysis or who require water to treat a medical condition may experience high water consumption as a result of their health condition. Council's Home Dialysis and Medical Treatment Water Concessions Policy is intended to provide some financial relief from the expense of high water consumption as a result of home dialysis or a medical condition requiring water for treatment. The relief from water consumption will be inclusive of the State Government Bulk Water price.

Logan City Council offers free immunisation clinics within the community. Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting against harmful diseases.

Council's immunisation clinics are held weekly and appointments are not neccessary. The clinics run  in various community locations in addition to a range of schools in Logan, including Logan Special School and Beenleigh Special School.
