Tips on how to meet your Neighbours

Knowing your neighbours is not only about doing a good deed for someone else. Good neighbours support each other, look out for each other, and in some cases socialise with each other. Here are some steps you can take to get to know your neighbours and get involved in your community.

  1. Get together in the local park
    This could be a picnic lunch or family fun day. 

  2. Smile at a neighbour and say ‘hello’

  3. Get active
    Start a walking group with neighbours or organise a game of street cricket. To find out what leisure facilities and sporting groups are available in your area visit the sport and leisure webpage.

  4. Hold a street party

  5. Organise a group activity to clean up your suburb, join a local conservation group and help improve your local environment

  6. Live and learn with your local Neighbourhood House / Community Learning Centre 

  7. Offer your services to a neighbour, such as assisting in the garden or helping with the weekly shopping
    Or sign up to the City of Casey’s Volunteer Matcher, designed to assist both volunteers and local volunteer groups to find each other. To find out more information visit the Volunteering in Casey website.   

  8. A number of programs are available for young people to participate in the community
    For more information visit the Youth Services webpage.

  9. Organise a street garage sale

  10. Get along to a local event or activity

  11. Playgroups provide a range of benefits to both parents and children
