Why not get in touch?



For 35 years, the communities of Mount Alexander Shire have known who to turn to when they need help.

Sadly, CHIRP may not be around to turn to in future.

Government funding has not kept pace with the rising cost of delivering community health services.
This is happening everywhere, but smaller rural services like ours are the hardest hit.

We need a commitment from the Victorian Government, so we can maintain our services
and not be forced to close our doors.

Support a community model of health and let CHIRP get on with delivering vital services for our community
