How can neighbours work together in harmony?

Neighbourly connects local projects with people and organisations that want to help, removing the difficulties traditionally associated with finding and giving help.

Connecting community members

Great things happen when people partner. That’s the premise of Neighbourly, who help bring communities alive by creating connections. Its unique giving platform helps people and organisations – from corporations to charities – locate people who have time, knowledge and skills to lend. Over 2,700 projects have received help via Neighbourly.

Surplus food

Marks and Spencer use Neighbourly to identify charities such as community cafés and homeless shelters it can donate its surplus food to. Charities simply set up alerts for the donations they need and store teams create donations via Neighbourly to show what is available for collection.

Painting and gardening

The Body Shop “enriching communities” community volunteering campaign uses Neighbourly to bring community members together to help transformational projects. The goal is to inspire customers and neighbours to volunteer for causes they believe in through community events from painting and gardening to canal paths and cuddling animals. Volunteering


Volunteering in projects using Neighbourly is a great way to give. Community participation is great for wellbeing and offers the opportunity to meet new people and develop skills.

This story shows how Neighbourly supports Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals, specifically target 17.7: “Promote the development, transfer, dissemination and diffusion of environmentally sound technologies to developing countries on favourable terms, including on concessional and preferential terms, as mutually agreed.”

About Neighbourly is the social platform that connects local projects with people and organisations who want to help.
