Neighbours helping neighbours are awesome

Neighbours Helping Neighbours is a program that inspires a community of caring and grows a diverse array of mutual aid activities among neighbours in a street/block or multi-unit building.

Workshops and coaching sessions

Workshops and coaching sessions are adapted to fit the needs and interests of the neighbour group; the program is customizable for delivery by different types of organizations and adaptable for different settings, including with seniors, intergenerational groups, or people with disabilities.

Who can enrol

While any group of neighbours can enrol in Neighbours Helping Neighbours, those who have experience with other neighbour to neighbour programs will be well-positioned to engage in this work.
