Healthy Tasmania Neighbour Day Challenge 2019

Healthy Tasmania Neighbour Day Challenge winners announced!

Did you celebrate Neighbour Day 2019 – Loneliness: What neighbours can do to create connections?

Healthy Tasmania supported Neighbour Day on 31 March with a community challenge.

Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community, bringing together like-minded people and organisations to grow stronger, well-connected communities.

Many events held across the state helped bring people together to build social connections and make people in the community feel better, but also help prevent loneliness, isolation and depression.

The Healthy Tasmania Neighbour Day Challenge encouraged people to reach out and create connections with those around them. People registering a Neighbour Day event could enter the Healthy Tasmania Neighbour Day Community Challenge to go in the draw for $5 000 or $1 000 for their community.

All entries shared about their Neighbour Day event and project ideas to help create connections and address loneliness in their community. The winners will spend the awarded funds in their town or neighbourhood to create community connections.
