About Us

We believe by bringing neighbours together, we can cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighbourhood they can rely on.

Where neighbourhoods happen — and connections are made

Nextdoor connects neighbours to each other — and to everything nearby: Local businesses, services, news updates, recommendations and stuff for sale from the people down the block.

Building connections in the real world is a universal human need. That truth, and the reality that neighbourhoods are among the most important communities in our lives, have been guiding principles for Nextdoor since the beginning.

Everyone is a neighbour

We recognise that thriving communities are more than just residents. They’re also made up of the local businesses, nonprofits and public services that keep our neighbourhoods strong and connected.

Residents: Connect with the people you wave or nod to in your neighbourhood. Now you can know their names and chat online.

Local businesses: Instantly reach your most valuable customers — your neighbours — and become a trusted member of the neighbourhood.

Nonprofits: Engage with the people who need you most and find support from donors nearby.

Public services: Share critical, real-time information directly at the neighbourhood level.

Brands: Provide locally relevant products and services that improve neighbours’ daily lives.

How we’re different

Real people at real addresses — Connect with neighbours who have verified their identity; they’re the same people you wave to across the road.

If it’s happening nearby you’ll hear about it — You’re automatically connected to everyone nearby, and whether you need to find a local pro or a lost dog, you can reach out to neighbours in an instant.

Your privacy is our priority — We do not share your name, address or email with advertisers, and your conversations will not be indexed by search engines. We are committed to building trust with neighbours every day.
