Be more neighbourly...

As we head into the new year, perhaps one resolution we can all make is to be more neighbourly.  

This year the Neighbour Day theme is: the importance of a supportive neighbourhood for children and young people.

We encourage all Australians to support safe and welcoming communities for the families with children and young people in their neighbourhoods.

Minister for Loneliness...

With 9 million adults in the UK reporting that they are often or always lonely, the UK government has just appointed a dedicated Minister for Loneliness.

Relationships Australia’s December 2017 online survey report presents the results of the third survey in a series that examines the levels of social isolation and loneliness for people accessing the Relationships Australia website.

It is well known that good relationships with others support our mental health, reduce social isolation and makes us feel connected to our community. It's time to reconnect with those around us. #NeighbourDay
