“What would it be like if we all connected to our neighbours a bit more than we already do?”
Through research and lived experience we know that connected communities thrive. Connected neighbours leads to positive individual and community well-being: feeling safe; being engaged; and having an overall sense of belonging.
But how do you connect with your neighbours?
It all starts by making the first contact; from introducing yourself on your neighbour's doorstep or sidewalk to attending a community association meeting and/or celebration.
What is the "Beyond Your Front Door" initiative?
Beyond Your Front Door is an local neighbourhood initiative which aims to support people in discovering and connecting to their community by meeting their neighbours and creating engaged, welcoming and inclusive places to live.
More about the project, along with resources around how you can do more in your neighbourhood can be found in the
Neighbourhoods Section of our Documents.
We invite you to discover your neighbourhood!
