The home of Neighbour Day
The principal aim of Neighbour Day is to build better relationships with the people who live around us, especially the elderly and vulnerable. Relationships Australia firmly believes that a positive relationship with the people that live nearby can and does change communities. This social connectivity assists our personal well-being, in helping to prevent loneliness, isolation and depression.
Andrew Heslop as the Founder of Neighbour Day handed over its stewardship to Relationships Australia on 1 January 2014. As an Ambassador he continues to actively support Neighbour Day and advocates for strong socially inclusive communities. Relationships Australia is very proud to be the home of Neighbour Day serving as a 'social hub' to share, connect, and help provide access to all things neighbourly in our community. As Costa says, "Every day is Neighbour Day!"
