We are so grateful to our supporters and funders. They have made it possible to establish the NCN as an ongoing community resource.
With thanks to the Community Wellbeing and Resilience Program, funded by Healthy North Coast through the North Coast PHN Program. This funding has enabled us to build a wonderful core team and over the coming twelve months will allow us to not only build and grow the network, but to also package up the NCN model for other communities to replicate!
This funding round builds on previous funding provided by Healthy North Coast under the Bushfire Recovery Community Grants Program. These funds allowed us to transition to an ongoing network over the past twelve months.
With thanks to Bellingen Shire Council who work closely with us, resourced the initial start up when we were all flying without a net and more recently are supporting the NCN reactivation through the Bellingen Shire Disaster Recovery and Resilience Program.
MessageMedia is a founding partner. They provide the NCN with access to their SMS platform at a discounted rate which enables us to alert our members to emergencies.
CapitalB Creative are providing lo-bono and pro-bono support to drive marketing and communications. They are also ace event managers. We really appreciate their expertise - but actually they are just great fun to work with. Check out their website for more info
KemJ have contributed planning, program design, governance and facilitation support - paddling under water but always with a smile.
InfoBounce have set up our new membership management system on NationBuilder, and manage all things IT. Thank goodness is all we can say!
With gratitude to Gethin, a stunningly talented local photographer and videographer with a quirky sense of humour, for some of the pictures on this website.
Big big thanks to the volunteers who have worked tirelessly to re-establish the NCN and those who are part of the NCN across the Bellingen Shire and beyond.
