Important Notes from CNA

As the Government has announced Auckland will move to Alert Level 3 and that the rest of New Zealand will move to Alert Level 2, we need to remember to keep calm, and keep kind.

CNA has updated its Covid-19 Response page - you can find out how to create a QR Covid Poster for your organisation to track contacts. You can also find where to download the Tracer App if you haven't already - we must be vigilant.

We will again be sending information to relevant agencies to keep them apprised and therefore, again, need your help to ensure they get up to date information.

Things change, and if you have had epilepsy for a long time, we're sure you have heard the terms:grand mal, petit mal, partial or complex partial. Back in 2016 the International League Against Epilepsy changed the terms to help make diagnosing and classifying seizures more accurate.....but don't fear, you can still call your own seizures whatever you like.....fuzzes, annoying, events or Niggles!!

You need to be enrolled to vote and have your say in the upcoming election and referendums. We've made it even easier to enrol online at Check out our video to learn more.
