Do you want to know your neighbours better, but never had the opportunity? Well now you do. Neighbour Day 2018!
Neighbour Day occurs annually on the last Sunday of March and aims to foster strong connections and build better relationships within our local community.
Social connection can improve health and wellbeing outcomes as it helps prevent loneliness, isolation and depression, and most importantly feels good.
The city is celebrating Neighbour Day 2018 with small grants of up to $100 for residents and local community groups to assist in hosting an event. The event can be anything from a BBQ to morning or afternoon tea, as long as it provides an environment for neighbours to meet and connect with each other.
Applications close at 4pm on Monday 26 February. A link to the application form and the grant guidelines are below.
If you would like more information please contact the city on 9237 9304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The city is working tirelessly to process the grant applications as they come in. Check back after Monday 5 March for a list of all Neighbour Day events to find one close to you. Alternatively, you may also look at the list of events being compiled on the Neighbour Day website.
If your grant application is successful, the city will provide you with some resources to assist the smoothness of your Neighbour Day Event. These resources include, but are not limited to:
- event management check lists
- food health and safety
- event health and safety
- invites, promotional signs and name tag templates.
