There are thousands of acts of neighbourliness that take place in the Bradford District every day of the year. There are also many Bradford District residents who for many different reasons have become isolated from their neighbours.
The be neighbourly campaign aims to encourage more acts of neighbourliness to increase the connections between neighbours and help overcome isolation.
How can I get involved in be neighbourly?

- Follow the be neighbourly Facebook page and post a story about a neighbourly act that has made a difference to you or to one of your neighbours.
