Information for Neighbourhood League Champions

Neighbourhood League Facebook groups can consist of more than one neighbourhood as long as it makes geographical sense for that area. For example, Westgrove and Westhaven have a shared neighbourhood group, while Hillendale has their own.

If you are interested in becoming a Neighbourhood League Champion, here is an idea of what your role means:

Neighbourhoods that are not claimed or where no Neighbourhood League Champion has come forward, a group will be created by our team and we will invite neighbours! Once the group gets rolling we will request that a neighbour takes on the role of the group moderator and let it go from there. 

Our hope is that community members take this opportunity to build a safer and more connected community through the use of Neighbourhood Leagues.

We are living in unprecedented times and the need for neighbourhood connections is more important now than ever! In times of crisis neighbours are often our first responders and can offer to help with grocery runs, picking up medications, a friendly chat or even help us access more formal resources like medical or mental health support.

We need more neighbouring! There are several benefits of neighbouring. A few of the key benefits:

Health and Wellness: More and better relationships improve health.  The neighbouring relationship is often overlooked as a unique and potent source of personal well-being.

Mental Health: Having access to consistent opportunities to build meaningful relationships opens the door for a troubled neighbour to connect with a supportive neighbour and benefit from human connection.

Poverty Reduction: People in poverty need often complex services, many of which can be provided through kindness and generosity of neighbours. When people know their neighbours, they are more likely to share resources (yard equipment, car shares, babysitting, employment advice). In addition, neighbours are well positioned to be a "broker" or to connect neighbours in need of necessary services.
