Neighbour Day and Street Meets

Neighbour Day 

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 BBQ or just a cuppa.

Traditionally 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 needed the most.

To encourage and support community members to organise and host activities in their streets and local parks to celebrate Neighbour Day in keeping with the annual Neighbour Day campaign theme. The principal aim of Neighbour Day is to build better relationships with the people who live around us.

Applications for the 2023 Neighbour Day funding have closed. Our Street Meets $150 rebates are still available.

Street Meets 

Residents are encouraged to host a Street Meet get-together or activity, focusing on small, simple street-based initiatives such as a BBQ at a park or street book exchange. By coming together, community members are able to forge strong, lasting friendships and new social networks that increase personal and community connection and cultivate a sense of wellbeing while improving safety.

'Street Meets' - formally known as Neighbour Day Every Day.

The Street Meets grant aims to:

  • Provide local residents with resources and support to organise activities in their streets and local parks;
  • Assist community members to create connections with others living in their neighbourhoods;
  • Increase the number of street activities happening in Kwinana;
  • Increase feelings of safety through increased levels of connection and passive surveillance;
  • Reduce feelings of isolation;
  • Identify community leaders and community assets; and
  • Build capacity of our community leaders.

The City of Kwinana will provide up to $150 (as a reimbursement after the activity) to encourage and support community members to organise and host street-level activities in their streets and local parks and invite their neighbours to attend or participate.

Applicants must register their event prior to it taking place, to be eligible for the Street Meets Grant.  Register your activity cia the SmartyGrants online portal.
