Previous research has found…

  • Our 2018 Neighbour Day report conducted by the Swinburne University of Technology found that Neighbour day can lead to continued interactions after the event, increasing neighbourhood trust and ultimately, perceptions of neighbourhood safety. This often meant people were more willing to offer support to one another (Long & Lim 2018).
  • Our 2019 report conducted by the Australian National university found that people who hosted Neighbour Day events had an increased sense of identification with their neighbourhood, an increased sense of belonging and perceived their neighbourhood environment more positively (Cruwys, Fong, Robinson & Mance 2019).
