Neighbourhood Watch (NW) are looking for local co-ordinators to run schemes for up to 20 houses around where you live.

Why NW?

Neighbouhood WatchWe would all like our neighbourhood to be a safe and secure environment and NW can certainly contribute towards this aim. NW exists to 

  • Help cut crime, the opportunities for crime and the fear of crime
  • Encourage community co-operation and foster good neighbourliness
  • Provide support to your Local Policing Team


NW is an independent voluntary organisation supported by, but not run by, the Police. The most important element in the organisation is the Individual Member.  Residents in a street or any other small area can get together to form a Scheme and Schemes can be grouped into Areas, as determined by convenience or geography.

Setting Up a Scheme

Schemes are very easy to set up, with one or more co-ordinators per street. As a guide 20 houses are about the maximum number for a Scheme, but the number can be as flexible as necessary, as long as it is manageable. If you are interested in joining NW and /or setting up a NW Scheme please contact the following email address [email protected] This will pass your message on to the appropriate Area Coordinator who will then contact you to take your interest further.

NW Training

As part of the introduction to NW and how to set up a NW Scheme there is a briefing/training session lasting no more than 2 hours. This can be given at any venue chosen by you, determined only by the number of possible participants

Again Why? 

Things will only improve if You help
