Thorold Neighbourhood Hubs
The Thorold Neighbourhood Hubs Team believes it’s a good time for the city of Thorold to become more intentional about creating ‘neighbourhood hubs’ across our city. The goal of the team is to develop caring communities in our neighbourhoods/apartments so that:
- people feel connected
- people feel supported and cared for
- people help each other and look out for one another.
When neighbours share a sense of community, they are more likely to feel safe and secure, with a decreased fear of crime compared to places with little sense of community. By bringing neighbours together, we can cultivate a kinder city where everyone has a community they can rely on.
The team is looking for ‘champions’ who are willing to take the lead of developing such hubs/caring communities in their neighbourhood or apartment building.
Reach out to learn more about becoming a champion in your neighbourhood!
