Become a neighbour connector today

Have you got some spare time? Why not join our free workshops, learn new leadership skills and get to know your neighbours better?

Maroondah City Council in conjunction with Neighbourhood Connect and our local community houses are running free workshops for people interested in making a difference in their neighbourhood.

Become a community connector in your street and:

  • discover how expanding local social connections can enrich community life
  • learn the positive effect social connections can have in reducing loneliness, isolation and improving mental wellbeing.

It can be as simple as a wave, a chat over the fence, an online group, inviting a neighbour for a cup of tea or hosting a street activity.

The workshops are designed to help you develop the skills and confidence to engage with other people in your street and neighbourhood with lots of ideas and helpful tips as well as mentoring and support.
