Communities Connect for Neighbour Day 2019

To celebrate Neighbour Day this year, Unity Housing held a range of events across the region.

Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community, encouraging people to connect with those who live in their neighbourhood.

Responsibility for Australia’s Neighbour Day belongs to every person, in every community. Here at Unity Housing, we have a social responsibility to all our tenants in creating thriving communities.

This year, the official Neighbour Day date was Sunday, March 31, with the theme of ‘Loneliness – what neighbours can do to createconnections’. We had a total of seven events to make it a real week of connection.

Unity Housing tenants and staff worked together to provide pathways for tenants to contribute and drive these events, making them truly community-owned. We received more than $3,700 in donations and even more in in-kind support.
