Communities are built on the contributions of everyone. It’s neighbours, friends, community groups, local government, local businesses, social groups, sports clubs; everyday people coming together to make a difference, bravely stepping into new roles, sharing their passions and hobbies with others, and nurturing connection everywhere they go.

Here is an ever-growing collection of stories that community members are so generously sharing with us – about their journeys, their reflections, their unique paths to connection. We invite you to read them and consider how you see yourself reflected in some of these tales. Connection is possible for everyone, and communities are out there, just waiting for you to find them or dream them up… perhaps a little inspiration from others might help!
