Neighbour Day

nullDo you want to know your neighbours better, but never had the opportunity? Well now you do. Neighbour Day 2019!

What is Neighbour Day?

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 2019 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 are now closed and a list of Neighbour Day events will be available soon.
