Looking out for our neighbours logo

Let's be there for one another.

Looking out for our neighbours is a social movement that aims to prevent loneliness throughout West Yorkshire and Harrogate by encouraging people to do simple things to help out their neighbours.

It’s now more important than ever that we reach out to the people around us.

By doing your bit to support people in your neighbourhood, you’ll help to rekindle neighbourly spirit, reduce social isolation and even prevent illnesses such as dementia, heart disease and depression.

A simple ‘hello’ sparked a great friendship between Emma and her neighbour.

My kids are looking out for their neighbours in Cononley. We’ve posted neighbour packs through the doors on our street. @NHSBfdCraven @WYHpartnership #OurNeighbours

What a lovely surprise! I came home today - full of cold - & later find this beautiful bunch of flowers from my neighbour by way of thank you for supporting her when she was unwell the other night #OurNeighbours #luckygirl
