our story

Our Neighbourhood (NBHD) is a collaboration between business and not-for-profit, coming together to create a community hub in the Ipswich CBD. We have a particular passion to help young people who are on the brink of or have been caught up in the cycle of Detention.
Our vision is to raise up leaders who will in turn, go and help others using the character and skills that they possess.

our hope

Our hope is to provide a place of belonging for people of any age where they know there are good humans available, helping people to overcome issues of loneliness, isolation and depression.
We have received good things and want to pass on good things.

“ A person living in a modern city or suburb can, for the first time in history go through an entire day, or an entire life, mostly encountering strangers. They can be surrounded by others and yet feel deeply, dangerously alone. The evidence that this is hard on us is overwhelming. Although happiness is notoriously subjective and difficult to measure, mental illness is not. Numerous cross cultural studies have shown that modern society, despite its nearly miraculous advances in medicine, science and technology, is afflicted with some of the highest rate of depression, schitzophrenia, poor health, anxiety and chronic loneliness in human history. As affluence and urbanization rise in a society, rates of depression and suicide tend to go up rather than down. Rather than buffering people from clinical depression, increased wealth in a society seems to foster it.”
