About Us

Neighbourhood Network came from the team behind Street Feast, a national neighbourhood street party event to celebrate community. We are a not-for-profit, community building organisation. We’re all about building and strengthening neighbourhoods and kick-starting ideas for positive community participation. 

At our core, we focus on reducing loneliness and social isolation by creating community connections. We do this by running projects that promote neighbourliness, social inclusion, volunteerism and creativity in the community. Since Covid-19 struck, we’ve produced a programme of 30+ activities that enables communities to stay connected to their neighbours through accessible socially-distanced activities.

Our Vision

At Neighbourhood Network our vision is that everyone has the opportunity to be connected in a neighbourhood group and feel included and at home in their communities. We believe that building connections between neighbours leads to more inclusive, healthier and happier communities.

Our Mission

Our work in Neighbourhood Network is a catalyst that encourages neighbours to connect. We do that by supporting community connectors.

We look for ways to encourage and support neighbourliness. Our work offers tangible ideas that can be used as an excuse to knock on a neighbour’s door. We look to find the best ways to support people with the initiative and courage to bring their neighbours together.

Our Values

Neighbourhood Network believes that feeling safe and connected where you live is important for health. 

We believe in volunteering and the importance of human connection. We believe in the power of solidarity and support between neighbours at a hyper-local level (the level of streets, townlands and apartment blocks). We believe that everyone wins when neighbours reach out to connect with other neighbours, even if they are different. 

We believe that great things can occur when people gather together.
