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 celebrated 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 could be anything from a barbecues to morning or afternoon teas, as long as it provides an environment for neighbours to meet and connect with each other.
If you like this idea and would like to be involved next year please check back to this page in early 2019 for information about Neighbour Day Grants 2019.
If you would like more information, please contact the city on 9237 9304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
