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.
