It starts with a smile

BeingNeighbourlyLogo
Smiling, waving or speaking to a neighbour can help everyone feel brighter or less isolated.

Evidence shows that the actions we take and the way we think have the biggest impact on our wellbeing and that the first step is to connect with the people around us: family, friends, colleagues and neighbours.

Please pass this message on to everyone you know and encourage them to take part so that our neighbours stay as connected, healthy and independent as possible.

Share the difference a smile, kind word or action has made to you….. post on our facebook page, or tweet us @sgloscouncil with #SmileSouthGlos.

For further information email cchengagement@southglos.gov.uk or telephone 01454 862356.

If you know of a good neighbour who deserves to be recognised you can nominate them for a South Gloucestershire Council Chair’s Community Award

Watch our short video about volunteering for inspiration and see how it can really make a difference.
