Strengthening neighbourhoods, connecting communities
Neighbourhood Connectors - community champions
Neighbourhood Connectors are community members who reach out to people to help them access information, get to know people, or stay informed about things happening in their area.
They may welcome new neighbours, keep in touch with people that might be unable to access information online or struggle with English, and could lead neighbourhood projects or events. What the do, and how often is dependent on the needs of the neighbourhood and the availability of the neighbourhood connector.
There is no limit to the number of neighbourhood connectors in a street or area.
Neighbourhood Connectors don't need to know everyone or everything. Our team are happy to support them, and may provide information, training, contacts, help with event planning or access to resources.
Get in contact with your local area coordinator if you are interested in becoming a Neighbourhood Connector.
