Natural disasters have an enormous effect on the collective psyche of a community. This survey explored the changes people experienced with their relationships to their neighbours and communities following the catastrophic 2019/20 Summer Bushfire season in Australia.
People’s perceptions of their neighbourhood affects the way in which we conceptualise belonging. In turn, this can mediate loneliness in communities. This survey explored people’s sense of belonging and trust within their neighbourhoods as a possible antidote to the loneliness epidemic.
Conflict between neighbours is more common than we might think. We explore tactics people use to overcome these experiences.
This survey utilises five questions measuring psychological distress. It measures this against perceptions of neighbourhood identification to see well-being affects how people relate to their community.
