At Home in my Neighbourhood aims to build friendly, connected and inclusive neighbourhoods. Neighbour to neighbour, street to street and neighbourhood to neighbourhood.

Coming together to share ideas and plan a gathering or neighbourhood project is a great way to meet your neighbours, build friendships and have fun. 


However you and your neighbours choose to come together, we have created the At Home in my Neighbourhood toolkit to help you make your neighbourhood activity as fun and successful as possible. The toolkit is full of easy to read and useful information and resources to help plan and organise your neighbourhood gathering or project. Download your toolkit today[3876KB] and start planning, you may even start a new neighbourhood tradition.
