Neighbour Day 2020
Sunday 29 MarchFree
Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community, encouraging people to connect with those who live in their neighbourhood.
Whether through a cuppa, a picnic in the park, or a message of support; Neighbour Day is the perfect opportunity to say thanks for being a great neighbour and for being there to lend a hand.
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
In 2020, the official Neighbour Day falls on Sunday 29 March.
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.
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.
