We're looking to team up with local businesses eager to show their support for local community leaders building social connections across the Northern Beaches.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) are open to local businesses who are willing to share a variety of their products and/or services to make the social gathering even more special.

Our It Takes a Village program encourages local residents to build stronger bonds with their neighbours and to get more involved in their local community. One of the main ways this is done is through hosting a Meet Your Neighbour party. Meet Your Neighbour parties can be small in scale in front yards, verges, strata blocks, local parks, or they can also include approved street closures in eligible streets across the Northern Beaches.

In-kind support towards local Meet Your Neighbour parties (up to a total value of $500 per party) may include things like food products, non-alcoholic beverages, non-plastic picnicware and more.

Neighbourhood parties can help build strong communities which contributes to the improved wellbeing of all community members.

Please express your interest by completing and submitting the form below.
