Do you want to connect with your neighbours?

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' aim 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.

For further information, including eligibility for a Street Meet grant.
