The aim of the Neighbourhood Watch and Home Watch movement is to bring neighbours together to create strong, friendly, active communities where crime and anti-social behaviour are less likely to happen.


Our vision is that of a caring society that is focused on trust and respect in which people are safe from crime and enjoy a good quality of life.


Neighbourhood Watch is about making sure that no one has to feel afraid, vulnerable or isolated in the place where they live. It’s about people looking out for each other, crossing barriers of age, race and class to create real communities that benefit everyone.

Powerpoint slides from the community meeting that took place on the 28 January are available below.
