Working together making the places we live in safer
Neighbours have been watching out for each other for thousands of years, being a good neighbour is much easier today but the outcomes are still the same. Together we can make our communities safer and nicer places to live.
Neighbours watching out for each other is what we are are about, and most of us already do it every day without thinking. Let’s do it together and let the power of community make a real difference.
Studies commissioned by Neighbourhood Watch Network indicate significant reduction in crime and fear of crime in active Neighbourhood Watch areas.
