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

City of Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said grants of $2000 were made available by the City for community groups to run local neighbourhood events, with an extra $1000 to match any other contribution, so some groups received $3000 in total from the City.

Mayor Adams encouraged people to go along and make new connections.

“These events will not only provide a great sense of community with some free activities and low cost or free food offerings but will also include information on how to connect with your community and combat isolation,” Mayor Adams said.

Neighbour Day, usually celebrated on the last weekend of March, is Relationships Australia’s social connection campaign that encourages people to reach out and make sustainable connections.

The Neighbour Day campaign supports and enables sustainable respectful relationships across communities year-round, while also helping to address loneliness across the nation.

The theme this year is ‘Connecting Communities for 20 years’, marking a significant milestone in the effort to tangibly reduce loneliness in the community.
