Did you know that since launching last year, there have been over 1,600 residents participating in Council’s It takes a Village program with 97% indicating they feel more connected to their neighbours and with an estimated 17,600 new social connections.

It Takes a Village inspires and equips residents of the Northern Beaches to connect with their neighbours and ‘create belonging’, the official slogan of Neighbour Day for 2023.

Learn more on creating belonging here.

The program sets three clear aspirations for every resident of the Northern Beaches, to: 

  1. Know your neighbour
  2. Get active in a local group or activity
  3. Give something back

Check out these resources and consider taking the two-minute Meet Your Neighbour Quiz or take a deeper dive into the four-week Meet Your Neighbour Challenge.

You can also find heaps of resources and information including the Meet Your Neighbour Guide to consider all the fun ways you can connect with your neighbours and ‘create belonging’.
