Nextdoor is the private social network for you, your neighbours and your community. It’s the easiest way for you and your neighbours to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world. And it’s free.
People are using Nextdoor to:
- Borrow a ladder
- Organise a Neighbourhood Watch Group
- Track down a trustworthy babysitter
- Find out who does the best paint job in town
- Ask for help keeping an eye out for a lost dog
- Find a new home for an outgrown bike
- Finally call that nice man down the street by his first name
Nextdoor’s mission is to provide a trusted platform where neighbours work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world.
- We are for neighbours
- For neighbourhood barbecues. For street parties. For borrowing a cup of sugar, and sharing a cup of tea.
- We’re for slowing down, children at play.
- We’re for sharing a common hedge and a great babysitter.
- We’re for neighbourhood watch. For keeping an eye out for one another. And for finding a lost cat.
- We believe waving hello to the new neighbour says, “Welcome” better than any doormat.
- We believe technology is a powerful tool for making neighbourhoods stronger, safer and happier places
to call home.
- We’re all about online chats that lead to more clothesline chats.
- We believe fences are sometimes necessary, but online privacy is always necessary.
- We believe strong neighbourhoods not only improve our property value, they improve
each one of our lives.
- We believe that amazing things can happen by just talking with the people next door.
We are Nextdoor. We are simply you and your neighbours, together.
New research shows Brits craving greater community spirit
In a study of more than 2,000 people across the UK conducted in August 2016, a third of Brits don’t know any of their neighbours, and less than half believe there is a still sense of community spirit in their neighbourhood. Just 12% of Brits feel strongly connected to their community, and 10% – or families living in roughly 2.6 million households – can’t even name their next-door neighbour.
However, the overwhelming majority of British people (69%) clearly crave a sense of community, believing that it would make where they live friendlier and increase property values, but also help neighbours feel safer and reduce crime.
Many residents of Park Wood are already benefiting from joining Nextdoor. Why not you ?
