Look out for your neighbour

Every one of us can make a difference. Keep an eye out for your neighbours and give them a helping hand when you can.


Looking out for each other is just part of being a good neighbour and for our older neighbours living alone this is even more important. ‘Look out for your neighbour’ is a Safer Napier campaign launched in 2019 that encourages people to reach out and connect with their neighbours.

Below are some quick tips on how to stay in touch:

  • Stop and say hello
  • Take time to have a chat
  • Ask if they need help with anything, perhaps a hand with the groceries or bringing the bins in
  • Swap phone numbers
  • Check on them in emergencies
  • Check in if they don’t open curtains, turn on lights or clear the mailbox.

If you’re worried about your neighbour call New Zealand Police on 105 or Age Concern Napier on 06 842 1346.
