About the Neighbourhood Care Network

The Neighbourhood Care Network was established in March 2020 as a community driven crisis response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the space of around ten days there were over 50 local neighbourhood groups and around 557 registered participants covering around 80% of the area of the Bellingen Shire, all with the goal of neighbours keeping neighbours safe . This was a remarkable achievement under very difficult circumstances.
