Friendly Neighborhoods: National Societies Guide

“Friendly Neighborhoods” is a methodological approach that seeks to achieve a greater number
of more secure environments where creativity, solidarity and dialogue between people who live in the neighborhood are promoted, acknowledging that there are different realities and solutions in each neighborhood. “Friendly Neighborhoods” aims to achieve Solidarity,
Safety and Sustainability (TRIPLE “S”), helping to improve the welfare of people in the environment they live in.
The bases of this methodology are participation and social mobilization, with an inclusive approach and strengthening the social fabric. The initiative seeks connectivity between neighborhoods and the promotion of Red Cross presence in each neighborhood as a dynamic process of the methodological approach and of sustainable initiatives.
