What is a Neighbour Day Ambassador?
Neighbour Day Ambassadors are much loved Australians who support the principal aim of Neighbour Day, which is to build better relationships with the people who live around us, especially the elderly and vulnerable.
They generously share their high profile and extensive reach to help raise awareness of Neighbour Day and its messages about the importance of social inclusion and connection in communities around Australia. Read about what our Ambassadors have to say…
“Use the day as a catalyst for great relationships all year round, by meeting your neighbours for the first time, or to reconnect. Exchange phone numbers for use in an emergency and reassure them that help is only a phone call away. “ Neighbour Day Founder & Ambassador Andrew Heslop
What is a Very Neighbourly Organisation?
The principal aim of Neighbour Day is to build better relationships with the people who live around us, especially the elderly and vulnerable. A Very Neighbourly Organisation has a strong values match to the principle aim of Neighbour Day.
A Very Neighbourly Organisation can be a community, business or government organisation which:
- Has significant networks of community minded members who are actively involved in local initiatives.
- Believes in the importance of social connection and resilient communities.
- Is able to support the Neighbour Day message and campaign activities.
- Can help us grow the Neighbour Day ethos beyond a single day, to caring about local communities every day of the year.
We’re pleased to have a growing number of Very Neighbourly Organisations who support Neighbour Day and its ethos. View our list of Very Neighbourly Organisations here.
