NCN Registration Form
Thank you for joining the Neighbourhood Care Network.
Please read this information before you sign up below.
The Neighbourhood Care Network is an independent Incorporated Association run by local residents, with grant funding support from the Bellingen Shire Council and the Healthy North Coast Primary Health Network.
The personal information you provide as part of your membership registration is protected in a secure on line system called Nation Builder. The people in the NCN Hub Team who access the database have a Police Check and have signed a Confidentiality Agreement.
Passing on your information
We will not pass your information on to any other organisations for marketing or information purposes. We will pass information about household vulnerabilities that you disclose in this membership registration form if there is an emergency, and emergency services ask us for it so that they can provide targeted help. You should not rely on this though. If you are in an emergency situation you should always ring 000.
Why we need your contact information and how we will use it
It is important that you provide as much contact information as you can in your registration, including your complete residential address and your mobile number, if you have one. Your address is required because we have mapping capability which we will use in an emergency. Your mobile is required because one of the aims of the network is to create communication and information pathways to get important information out during emergencies and during locally disruptive events. We will send you SMS alerts about disaster and emergency preparation, COVID restrictions and severe weather events. We also need your email address and land line if you have one.

We ask if your household has any vulnerabilities that mean you might need extra help in emergencies. We will pass this information on to emergency services such as the Rural Fire Service if they ask for it. We will not pass this information on for any other reason.
