Neighbours Unite aims to create resilient and safer communities through community connections. Most community activities have been cancelled or postponed, and social distancing is reducing the contact that people may have with their normal support networks. It is therefore an important time to reach out to connect with people in your community, particularly your neighbours and those you know are vulnerable.
Neighbours Unite is helping the community stay connected, and we’ve adapted our program in light of COVID-19. Physical distancing does not have to mean social isolation. We have developed some great Neighbours Introduction Cards, which you can download and use to connect with your neighbours. There are a lot of socially isolated people in the community and you can make a difference.
Neighbours Unite reimbursements will continue with some adjustments to ensure we are working within the government guidelines for social distancing. Neighbours Unite Activities can be hosted virtually within communities, through online activities such as Watch Parties, gaming, seedling swaps and more. Neighbours Unite Activities can be registered online.
For more information or ideas about how to connect with your neighbours during this time, contact the Neighbours Unite Team on 9528 0333 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As restrictions are lifting, we would encourage you to get connected with your neighbours and register your gatherings as a Neighbours Unite Activity to be reimbursed up to $150.

A connected community is a safer community and neighbours play a vital role.
