We are currently recruiting people to become local Neighbourhood Watch coordinators where they live. Being local, knowing neighbours, building communications relationships is what matters to us.
Strenghten your community by talking, staying informed, noticing, notifying and appreciating that your local community is as strong and resilient as you make it.
We accept any shape or form of Neighbourhood Watch group and would like to encourage you to register your group with us, the Tower Hamlets Neighbourhood Watch Association, even if you are not online or use various platforms for your communications.
Ideally we’d like you to consider registering yourself on the Ourwatch Website as coordinator for your local area and invite your neighbours to join you and use that excellent and safe tool. Membership of Ourwatch opens your world of crime prevention notifications from local and national sources.
You can use the Ourwatch group tool to send emails to your local members safely.
All we ask is, that if you are a registered coordinator on the Ourwatch website, that you use that tool and respond to enquiries from the public, those who enquire about membership. You can mark the area you want to be responsible for yourself. An area can be as small as one housing block or as big as a housing estate. You choose, how many people you want to communicate with.
If someone from outside of your area applies to join your group, you have the ability to let them know that the person is outside of your catchment area and you advise them to start their own group within their neighbourhood.
Don’t worry whether you live in a small house or a tower block, run a shop or walk your dog, any area, that you consider your watch area is what you can take social responsibility for.
For those not using Ourwatch we have paper registration forms, enabling group coordinators to mark the area, they want to be active within. Please enquire.
