Thank you for your interest in being a part of the Samford Support Network. The Samford Support Network (SSN) will use this form to collect information about a person wishing to become a member of the Samford Support Network.

The membership application process follows 4 simple steps:

Step 1 Submit your basic contact details using the online Membership Application Form. Our Membership Coordinator will then contact you for a brief introduction and explain about the SSN and the different areas that you can become involved.

Step 2 When requested by SSN, complete the remainder of the Application Form online.

Step 3 SSN will conduct Criminal History Check and obtain your signatures on the Volunteer Code of Conduct and any other documents necessary.

Step 4 SSN will complete your induction relevant to your interests.
To be a Member you must:
  • Be at least 18 years of age and be fit enough to undertake the duties for which you are volunteering.
  • Reside in the Samford Village, Samford Valley, Wights Mountain, Camp Mountain, Highvale, Closeburn, Cedar Creek, Yugar or Draper.

  • Have a current open driver’s licence, a roadworthy car and comprehensive insurance.
  • Have a personal email address and Internet access.

Your application must be processed by SSN before you are considered a member. Please be aware that you are not covered by any of the protections offered to SSN volunteers, such as insurance, until you have received written confirmation of your membership from the SSN Management Committee.

Your information may be used by the SSN Management Committee and may be seen by advisors to the SSN (for example, for legal, accounting, audit purposes), our partners, or where you have agreed, or where it is required or authorised by law to be disclosed.
