Making communities stronger

Near Neighbours helps people make their communities stronger. By encouraging people to get to know each other and work together they can build relationships of trust and improve their neighbourhoods.

It’s not about, religion, class or ethnicity. It’s all about community.

We have created innovative solutions to tackle isolation and maintain community networks.

In many neighbourhoods across England, different faith and ethnic communities live and work next to each other, yet rarely interact with one another.
