Neighbour Day 2019

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

When?

Neighbour Day is celebrated on the last Sunday in March every year with the aim of fostering strong personal connections that last the whole year round. Every day can be neighbour day.

The annual theme for Neighbour Day 2019 is Loneliness: What neighbours can do to create connections.

In 2019, Neighbour Day falls on Sunday 31 March.

Why?

The principal 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 transform 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. And make us all feel better about the world!

Who?

Responsibility for Australia’s Neighbour Day belongs to every person, in every community. We want to work with individuals, families, neighbourhoods, communities and organisations to help grow Neighbour Day, so that we can all live in communities that are welcoming, kind and supportive.

Neighbour Day is managed by Relationships Australia.
