Being part of a community makes us feel like we belong. It makes us feel connected and like we can depend on people when we need to. In turn, these people can depend on us. Having community connections means we feel better about ourselves and trust the people around us. There are lots of different examples of communities. It could be a neighbourhood centre, a library, a church, or even a Facebook group.
