Healthy Tasmania Neighbour Day Challenge 2019

Neighbour Day 2019 – Loneliness: What neighbours can do to create connections

We invite you to get involved in Neighbour Day on Sunday 31 March 2019.
Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community, bringing together like-minded people and organisations to grow stronger, well-connected communities.

Check out the Neighbour Day website for ideas and resources to help organise an event in your community.
Your event can be as simple or as wide-reaching as you like! We strongly recommend partnering with other community organisations. By hosting or attending an event you’re helping to create social connections that not only make us feel better, but help prevent loneliness, isolation and depression.

The Healthy Tasmania Neighbour Day Challenge encourages people to reach out and create connections with those around them.

Contact your council, local government community development officer, library, Neighbourhood House, Child and Family Centre and other service providers as they may also be planning a Neighbour Day event.
