  • On Sunday 3 July 2022, Council resolved at a Special Council Meeting to request to the State Government to change Council’s name to Merri-bek. The new name is now pending Minister for Local Government endorsement. This means, that our name will remain Moreland City Council until endorsement by the Minister and the State Government. Learn more.

In Moreland, there are over 70 senior citizens groups. Our seniors groups are for older people from all different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. The groups meet at different venues around Moreland and provide an opportunity for older people in the community to get together for activities and socialising.

You can contact us to find out more about joining a seniors group, or get in touch with the group directly. You do not need to have an assessment to join.

Below is a list of all active social groups in Moreland, listed based on cultural background.
