In recent years, much Government policy to boost neighbourhoods and strengthen communities has been based on a premise that ‘neighbourly communities’ and strong neighbourhood-based social networks are crucial in improving people’s lives and turning around deprived neighbourhoods. The essays in this collection seek to develop a better understanding of what neighbourliness is, how it differs from wider notions of social capital and how neighbourly relationships can be promoted in Britain. The collection includes definitions of neighbourliness and case-studies of neighbourliness in action.
