Tell us your story

22 Feb, 2019

The Neighbour Day team is calling on Australians in each and every local community to share their stories about small kindnesses, great gestures of neighbourly spirit, hilarious tales and fond remembrances of their wonderful neighbours.

“For our annual Tell Us Your Story Competition this year we are asking communities to share their stories with us before Neighbour Day so we can run your stories in the lead up to Sunday 31 March to help inspire others to host a Neighbour Day event on 31 March, or just take the time to reach out to their neighbours,” said Nick Tebbey, National Executive Officer, Relationships Australia

“Our theme for Neighbour Day 2019 is ‘loneliness - what neighbours can do to create connections’ and we are keen to hear your stories of how you have created neighbourly connections and how those connections have gone some way to helping end loneliness in your neighbourhood,” Mr Tebbey said.

Entries are now open for the Tell Us Your Story competition on the Neighbour Day website. So get writing – tell us your story in 250 words or less and you will be in the running for state, territory and national prizes.

Get your stories in by 5pm Tuesday 26 February 2019 to be eligible to win. Competition winners will be announced on Friday 1 March, 2019 and each state and territory winner will be awarded a $100 prize, with the overall national winner taking home $400.
