Our lives are often so busy many of us don’t know the people living closest to us. Getting to know our neighbours helps create a sense of belonging, strengthens connections and ensures everyone is involved in the buzz of local community. Know My Neighbour is a simple initiative to encourage neighbourliness through sharing creative ideas of friendly activities to get know those that live closest to us. Together we can reduce social isolation in our city – what small part can you play?

“It was such a treat to share lunch with so many of our work neighbours, both from Brighthelm and Community Works next door. There were a few new faces, as well as friends I haven’t seen in a while, so the catching up over food was lovely. Can’t wait to do it again!”

“I got my postcard from my lovely neighbour, Number 38, who really are the heart of our street.”
