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:

#HelloNeighbour
