The Bathurst Regional Community Safety Committee have developed a neighbourhood connection campaign as part of the Don't be Next Break and Enter Residential Campaign. This project is funded by a NSW Crime Prevention Grant.
The neighbourhood connection campaign includes a mail out of a tri-fold brochure to all households which outlines some simple household safety tips and includes a tear off neighbourhood connection card. This connection card allows neighbours to introduce themselves and offer assistance to each other when they are on holidays, unwell or need extra help taking bins out/gardening/feeding pets.
The roll out of this campaign will coincide with Neighbour Day on 28 March 2021. Neighbour Day encourages people across all communities to build and strengthen their social connections. The theme of Neighbour Day 2021 is "Every day is neighbour day".
