Nextdoor, the free app and website for neighbours, has partnered with the charity Giving Tuesday to challenge
its members to pledge an hour a week to help tackle loneliness, with the aim of giving one million minutes to
support neighbours in need in their communities before 2019.
With nine million lonely people in the UK, there’s never been a better time to commit to helping tackle
loneliness in your community. According to a recent study, 50% of people have experienced loneliness in the
last year, with almost half of people admitting to seeing their neighbours less during the colder winter months.
How to get involved with the #HelloNeighbour challenge:
Step 1: Pledge your support to the #HelloNeighbour campaign
by visiting their website at: go.nextdoor.com/helloneighbour.
Here you can sign up to be a part of the challenge by posting
the #HelloNeighbour pledge on Nextdoor, Facebook and
Twitter. Don’t forget to include how you’re planning on
meeting the challenge, from saying hello to a stranger to
inviting a neighbour over for coffee.
Step 2: Find and connect with like-minded people in your
community through Nextdoor to discuss who and how you
would like to support the #HelloNeighbour challenge. Perhaps
you could join someone in your community in supporting a
neighbour in need?
Step 3: Share the message and get as many people as possible to
take the challenge to help tackle loneliness in your community.
Step 4: Don’t forget to share how your #HelloNeighbour
challenge goes and what you’ve done to help your neighbours
on Nextdoor and your other social channels using the hashtag:
