Neighbour Day

Neighbour Day is an annual celebration of community and encourages people to connect with those who live in their neighbourhood.

Neighbour Day is the 25 March 2018 and the theme for this year is ‘The importance of a supportive neighbourhood for children and young people’.

Neighbours who know each other, look out for each other. Over 67% of homeowners feel safer when they know their neighbours.

Benefits of knowing your neighbours -

  • Connected people feel safer, happier and live healthier lifestyles
  • Being neighbourly breaks down social barriers, reduces isolation and improves wellbeing

  • Neighbours can assist with errands, support, advice or a cuppa and a chat!



If you would like to meet your neighbour, the City has ‘Meet your neighbour contact cards’ available

Neighbour Day

Neighbour Day is supported by Relationships Australia and was founded in Melbourne, Australia in March 2003 by Andrew Heslop after the remains of an elderly woman were found inside her suburban home. Mrs Elsie Brown had been dead for two years – forgotten by her neighbours, her friends and her family. Neighbour Day has progressed from a reminder to connect with elderly neighbours to an annual celebration of strong communities and friendly streets. People of all ages participate because everyone, everywhere is a neighbour no matter where you live or your personal circumstances.
