The Mooroolbark Umbrella Group Inc. is where successful Mooroolbark organisations look for ways to support one another cooperatively to bring benefit and greater well-being to all in Mooroolbark.

As our upside down umbrella logo suggests, MUG is not a controlling group, but rather one that seeks to nurture, support and encourage the good things already happening in our township.

As we look back over our quarterly meetings in recent years, you could describe our time together as a group of friends who laugh a lot, are mutually supportive, and patiently seek the betterment of the town for all.

Our purpose statement is as follows:

  • With a real focus on listening to and communicating with each other, MUG aims to genuinely represent all who play a part in Mooroolbark.
  • We will provide an inclusive voice that helps our township flourish for the benefit of all.
  • We aim to grow and nurture partnerships in learning, family life, environment, development, safety, civic, recreation, arts and communications.
  • In articulating a clear vision for Mooroolbark, we will seek to identify key issues and explore ways of promoting cooperative responses.
