Programs to get involved in

Connect your community, support mental well-being and get to know your neighbours by embracing a local space.

Embrace a Space is an easy to follow, step-by-step guide for community members to use in celebrating and caring for their important spaces. 

Mandurah is renowned for its beautiful waterways, charming plants and wildlife and relaxed, inviting lifestyle. Embrace a Space supports bringing local spaces to life, by providing a platform for community members to connect with nature and each other. Groups of interested residents will be supported through a process of establishing, developing and implementing an activity plan to successfully care for community spaces. 

If you're ready to embrace your local space then register as a contact person.

We all feel better when we belong.

All Mandurah residents are encouraged to get neighbourly and connect with their neighbours.

There are a number of tools and resources available to help residents connect with their neighbours. Check out some tips and programs below and commit to touching base with your neighbours today.

Research has shown connecting with your neighbours is important for a number of reasons, including:

  • reducing social isolation and loneliness,
  • building informal social support networks,
  • sharing of local knowledge,
  • reducing crime and increasing reporting of suspicious activities, and
  • positive mental outcomes.

Street Mates Mandurah

The City of Mandurah has developed 'Street Mates Mandurah', a neighbour resource with tips and ideas for connecting with your neighbours.

The Neighbour Resource Brochure contains:

  • ‘How’ and ‘Why’ to connect with your neighbours
  • Sample invites, name tags and other resources to help you plan a neighbour event
  • Examples of neighbour connection initiatives from around Mandurah

Also available:

  • ‘Get to know your neighbour’ fridge magnets
  • Information on neighbourhood safety (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design)

Harmony Week

Harmony Week runs from 15–21 March every year and encourages everyone to experience, explore and appreciate WA's wealth of cultural, religious, linguistic and ethnic diversity.

Harmony Week is a State Government multicultural community relations initiative.

Cultural diversity’s benefits

Harmony Week is an opportunity to consider the many benefits Mandurah gains from its culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities.

Benefits include job creation, improved skill levels, the introduction of new skills and networks, and improved economies of scale.

The economic advantages are also many. Our diverse communities link us strongly with the rest of the world and increase our competitiveness in this global market.

Harmony Week is an opportunity for all Western Australians to celebrate our diversity while working to remove barriers that still exist in the community.

Community Cultural Ambassadors

Within each community there are people who want to step up and make a difference. Through our Community Ambassador program, we identify and support local bi-cultural and bi-lingual people to better connect their communities to mainstream services, support, and useful information.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic there has never been a more important time for Community Ambassadors than now! Five local people in the Mandurah area took up the volunteer role in 2020 to help connect the community. Each Community Ambassador has been provided a series of training sessions, on-going support from Multicultural Futures, and the City of Mandurah, and has in turn provided culturally appropriate workshops within their cultural community.
