Neighbours of Logan
Do you want to live in a neighbourhood where kids play together, people put your bins out when you're away and check in if something suspicious is happening? You can have that, but you might need to take steps to create it.
Neighbourhood sense of community has been linked to many benefits including creating a sense of belonging, reducing loneliness, providing a mental health boost and lowering crime rates. With benefits like these, we could all stand to strengthen our neighbourhood ties.
In our neighbourhood, we all look out for each other when we are not home. We help each other when needed and show support. When we first moved in four years ago our neighbours all brought us cooked food for days! Logan Resident.
Whether through a cuppa, a picnic in the park, or a message of support, there are many ways you can connect with your neighbours.
