Safer Neighbourhoods Stronger Communities

Brights Crescent Neighbourhood Watch

About 4 years ago, due to several housebreakings in our street some neighbours decided our Street should join Neighbourhood Watch Scotland (NWS) and I became the NWS co-ordinator.

Exceptionally helpful and friendly NWS staff helped me with this process.

I delivered the NWS Information pack to all neighbours which resulted in approx. 40% of residents joining and receiving regular current updates with Police Scotland information, etc.

During Covid, our neighbours received vital help/information via NWS and this greatly reduced anxiety.

Our Street feels safer, neighbours discuss a variety of issues, and are reassured knowing there is the regular up-to-date assistance of NWS at the press of a button on their phone, computer, etc.

Our Street would encourage other neighbours to join NWS.
