Launching a new Neighbourhood Scheme or Group is in fact exceptionally easy.
Firstly you need to talk with the neighbours :
Getting involved or setting up a GroupIf you’re interested in getting involved with a Neighbourhood Watch group – you can join Cambridgeshire NW by clicking on the Join Us link at the top of the page.
If you would like to set up a group in your area or whether you might like to set one up in your own immediate neighbourhood. Talk to your neighbours to gauge interest (just one or two may be appropriate to start with) and then make contact with us.
Whether you attract interest from a lot of households or only a few, you should be able to set up an effective group. Neighbourhood Watch groups often start small and then grow as people see what they’re about and want to get involved. All it takes is for a few energetic people to set the ball rolling.
Once you have joined you may be surprised at how much it changes life in your area. You’ll probably find yourself talking more to your neighbours and to local agencies and businesses. You’ll not only feel more connected to the life around you, but be showing others, especially the most vulnerable, that you’re looking out for them and that they’re not alone. You’ll discover that, together, your activities will strengthen your community, and that when the community is united, you’re not just safer, but happier and able to achieve much more.
