Understanding neighbourliness and belonging: A scoping paper for the Neighbourhood Action Network (published September 2008, updated in August 2010)

In recent decades increased mobility, longer life expectancy, the breakdown of the extended family and an increasingly diverse and rapidly changing population have changed the way we live, and the extent to which we feel connected to our neighbourhoods. Building social capital at the local level can lead to stronger, healthier communities and a sense of neighbourliness and belonging among local residents.
