Case studies

Denholm Development Neighbourhood Watch

A few years ago the then Neighbourhood Watch (NW) Coordinator for my street, Denholm Road in Musselburgh, East Lothian, decided that they could no longer do the role. NW Scotland reached out to all the members of the Watch to see if any one of us was prepared to take on the role. As I didn’t want it it to fold and knowing it is a great scheme, I took it on.

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.
