Dear supporters,

Neighbourhood Watch’s May 2020 eNewsletter is published.  Click here to read it.

This month’s edition looks at how neighbours are supporting their communities across England and Wales – from setting up a Calling Tree to providing shopping to the elderly, vulnerable or self-isolating. It highlights how Neighbourhood Watch groups, who supported communities through the recent flooding, are proving invaluable during COVID-19. Using local knowledge and a community resilience structure they are well-placed to call residents to action: organising food shopping; collecting medication; and ensuring the most vulnerable are safe and connected.

Neighbourhood Watch Week is fast approaching on the 7th – 13th June. The newsletter explains how we have rethought this years’ theme to recognise and celebrate all acts of kindness and neighbourliness, no matter how large or small they are.

“We have seen communities come together during times of need. Resilience and compassion, when needed and offered, are what makes communities special”
Cheryl Spruce, Head of Membership and Engagement at Neighbourhood Watch Network

We encourage you to share your stories with us on what your Neighbourhood Watch group or local community has been doing in response to COVID-19. To do this, please visit this page.

If you have a further few minutes to spare and have not already done so, please consider completing our survey (click here)  which aims to find out how the lockdown caused by COVID-19 has affected our use of, and trust in, technology. The survey closes this Thursday, 28th May.

Many thanks and keep well,

Central Support Team, NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH NETWORK

Good Luck Liann.
