Neighbour Day

Relationships Australia Victoria
9:53am Tuesday, 26 March 2019

Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community, encouraging people to connect with those who live in their neighbourhood.

In 2019, Neighbour Day will be celebrated on Sunday 31 March, with this year’s campaign focusing on ‘Loneliness: What neighbours can do to create connections’.

Neighbour Day was founded in 2013 by community activist and social commentator Andrew Heslop, and in 2013 Relationships Australia took on responsibility for the campaign.

Read more about how it all began.

The primary aim of Neighbour Day is to foster community and encourage Australians to build and strengthen relationships with the people who live around us, especially the elderly and vulnerable.

There are many ways to celebrate Neighbour Day, and your celebrations can be as big or as small as you’d like. Some examples are attending a local community event, organising a picnic in your neighbourhood park, or just dropping a thank you note into a neighbour’s letterbox. We encourage you to get involved in whatever way is manageable for you.

Visit the Neighbour Day website for more ideas and to register your event.
