Ballina Business Connect

Ballina Shire Council, local retailers and community members are working together to help all residents during this challenging period.

To facilitate social distancing for our residents, Council is coordinating Ballina Business Connect, a service to enable residents to obtain staple household items without having to leave home. 

All retailers who can provide staple items, such as groceries and essential daily needs, are invited to register for Ballina Business Connect

Local businesses unable to make deliveries can also register. Ballina Taxis are supporting this program and can work with businesses to provide a safe means of delivery at minimal cost.

Seniors may also be eligible to use the Regional Seniors Travel Card for Ballina Taxi deliveries and should enquire by visiting service.nsw.gov.au/regionalseniorstravel/using-your-card

Retailers who register by 9am Friday 3 April 2020 will be published in the Advocate’s Business Connect feature on Wednesday 8 April 2020.

Register your Business for Business Connect

or call Ballina Shire Council on 1300 864 444
