Neighbour Day 2021

Neighbour Day encourages people across all communities to build and strengthen their social connections. Because every day is neighbour day.

Whilst Neighbour Day is officially celebrated on the last Sunday in March each year, the purpose of the campaign is to raise national awareness of the importance of social connection and neighbourly actions throughout the year. The campaign encourages people to make meaningful connections that last beyond the day itself.

The official theme for Neighbour Day 2021 on Sunday 28 March is ‘Every day is neighbour day’ – building on the growing movement of people taking neighbourly actions every day of the year, whether in person or from a distance.

Whether through a cuppa, a picnic in the park, a neighbourly action, or a message of support, Neighbour Day is the perfect opportunity to reach out to neighbours, both near and far.
