About Neighbour's Day

Neighbours Day Aotearoa is a collaborative campaign organised and supported by Lifewise, Inspiring Communities, The Mental Health Foundation, Christchurch Methodist Mission and New Zealand Red Cross.

Neighbour's Day is based on the belief that every connection you have with your neighbours makes your neighbourhood more friendly, fun and safe. By encouraging better connected neighbourhoods and more everyday ‘neighbourliness’, neighbours can be stronger and more resilient, significantly enhancing the wellbeing of individuals, family/whanau and the wider community. Stronger neighbourhoods can be part of the successful antidote for many social issues within Aotearoa - and through our actions as churches and individuals, we can be part of the solution to improving the wellbeing of children and families in our communities.


Check out resources on the Neighbour's Day website which are useful for inspiring and planning your Neigbours Day outreach.
