Neighbour Day is celebrated on 25 March 2018 with the aim of fostering strong personal connections that last the whole year round.
The aim of Neighbour Day is to build better relationships with the people who live around us, especially the elderly and vulnerable.
Neighbours are important because good relationships with others can and do change communities. Social connection also makes us feel better as it helps prevent loneliness, isolation and depression.
Neighbour Day brings together like-minded people, resources, and organisations to grow stronger, well connected communities.
Responsibility for Australia's Neighbour Day is about everyone; every person, in every community.
