There are a variety of different types of neighbourhood circles and characteristics. Whatever way the neighbourhood circles form, they all hold something in common, they all work to enhance people’s sense of belonging to their local neighbourhood in some way. While they do not exist on a hierarchy there are some that may work better than others depending on the circumstance. Some ways of operating may also prove more sustainable for some groups compared to others, while others act as umbrella groups for other smaller initiatives to branch off and form. Some circles find themselves rooted in a geographically bounded place, while others rely on the people who come together rather than the place itself. What they all have in common, however, is that all act as versions of neighbourhood circles in their own right and work in their own way to support their neighbourhood and its members.
