Do you want to live in a neighbourhood where kids play together, people put your bins out if you’re away and people check in with you if they see something suspicious? Do you want to live in a neighbourhood with a sense of community?
Living in a neighbourhood that has a sense of community is linked to many benefits for residents including:
a feeling of belonging
improved physical and mental health
lower crime rates.
With benefits like these, it makes sense for us to all 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
There are many ways you can connect with your neighbours. You could share a cuppa, have a picnic in the park or send a message of support.
