Neighbourhood Network is an Irish not-for-profit organisation which aims to promote social inclusion, tackle loneliness and build supportive and resilient neighbourhoods around Ireland. Our work creates communities of empowered people, with a strong sense of local identity, and builds empathy and understanding between neighbours.
We believe that building connections between neighbours increases the strength of the community overall and leads to more inclusive, healthier and happier communities.
We give neighbours an opportunity to connect at a hyper-local level, providing a framework and resources to self organise and enable community level interactions. We do this by facilitating projects that promote neighbourliness, social inclusion, volunteering, sustainability and creativity in the community.
Our year culminates with the national day of street lunches and community celebrations called ‘Street Feast’ that each year brings together over 110,000 people in 1,150 communities, through the simple act of sharing a meal with their neighbours. Since Street Feast began 10 years ago, we have seen a total of 5,563 Street Feasts take place across Ireland. President Michael D Higgins is our patron.
In 2020 we expanded our vision and mission, developed a range of dynamic programmes, and adopted a new name for the organisation; Neighbourhood Network.
