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 (this year, 25 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 on Sunday 25 March. The event can be anything from a barbecue to morning or afternoon tea, as long as it provides an environment for neighbours to meet and connect with each other.
Applications for Neighbour Day grants are now closed – thank you to everyone who applied in this inaugural round. The successful applicants have been notified – see below for more details about events in your area.
If you would like more information, please contact the city on 9237 9304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This year, the city awarded five Neighbour Day Grants to community members holding events across the City of Subiaco on Sunday 25 March. If you live in the vicinity of one of these events, then you are invited to attend – just RSVP to to the host whose details, along with other event information, are listed on our events calendar.
There are also another two events taking place on Neighbour Day that are not supported by a City of Subiaco Neighbour Day grant, but that may be of interest to you. These are also listed on the city’s events calendar.
Below is a list of references and information that will assist successful grant recipients in hosting their events. If at any point you need assistance or have any questions, please contact Cultural Services via email email@example.com or by phone 9237 9304.
