This Council has been established to provide input and advice on community engagement across Northern NSW. The Council advises the Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) and the North Coast Primary Health Network (NCPHN) regarding community engagement, communication strategies and supports required for community representatives to more effectively engage with Health Services.
The NNSWLHD and NCPHN Boards have endorsed this model for community engagement with the aim of seeking broader and targeted community input through a range of consultation and communication strategies.
Membership of CEAC includes local government, the education sector, key stakeholders, carers and consumer and community representation.
