Neighbourly Leads

What is a Neighbourly Lead?

Neighbourly Leads help make Neighbourly a great resource for their local community. They help Neighbourly grow and run smoothly in their suburb.

Leads are an important part of the Neighbourly team, so they have some elevated privileges on the site including reviewing inappropriate and flagged messages and being that important link between the Neighbourly team and your local members.

There’ll also be other Leads in your community to assist and support you as you go!
