Street by Street is a national project aiming to
turn streets into communities
and foster an Australia-wide network of neighbour groups.
If you are fortunate enough to live with a sense of community, where you know the people that live near you, share experiences and help one another, then you’ll probably agree, your life is richer for it. For many neighbourhoods though, this type of connection isn’t happening naturally. The Street by Street Project is here to help people build better connections with neighbours, so that more of us can feel a sense of community. We’d like to see connecting with neighbours become the norm across Australia, and for people to feel happier, safer and more supported as a result. We see regular, informal social get-togethers as the pathway to creating community.

“I was new to Melbourne and I thought becoming a Community Connector would be a great way to meet people. We had 29 neighbours come along to our first get-together was very successful at a local bar/cafe. They had lots of great ideas for what we can do as a neighbour group.” Community Connector, St Kilda Neighbours Group
