Neighbour Day – What do you have planned?

Sunday 27 March 2016

Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community, bringing together the people next door, across the street or on the next farm for a beer, a barbie or just a cuppa.

Held on the last Sunday in March every year, it’s the perfect day to say thanks for being a great neighbour and for being there when I needed you most.

The actual meaning of Neighbour Day is so much more …

The principal aim of Neighbour Day is to build better relationships with the people who live around us, especially the elderly and vulnerable.

Neighbours are important because good relationships with others can and do change communities. Social connection also makes us feel better as it helps prevent loneliness, isolation and depression.

Neighbour Day brings together like-minded people, resources, and organisations to grow stronger, well connected communities.
