Neighbourhood Watch has teamed up with social network Nextdoor and youth charity The Challenge to promote a great new initiative – the #shareacuppa pledge.
Research shows that 60% of people don’t know their neighbours well or at all. Nearly two thirds never borrow things or exchange favours with their neighbours, and three quarters of people would not feel confident about letting a neighbour feed their pet while on holiday.
So this August, please join us and take just a little bit of time out of your month to sit down and have a cuppa with a neighbour.
We are asking all of our local volunteers to sign up for our pledge here – and stay tuned for more announcements about how our organisations plan to work together to deliver the pledge, and together build stronger and more cohesive communities.
