Aims

Neighbourhood Support aims to make our homes, streets, neighbourhoods and communities safer and more caring places in which to live.

Neighbourhood Support Groups

Neighbourhood Support Groups enable people to share information, ideas and insights. A Neighbourhood Support Group will:

  • Encourage neighbours to talk to each other
  • Share information that will help reduce the risk and fear of crime
  • Help foster a sense of community spirit, where everyone is respected and valued
  • Educate and empower neighbours to take responsibility for their own safety
  • Identify the strengths and skills of neighbours to contribute to solving local problems
  • Help reduce graffiti, vandalism, violence and disorder
  • Support victims of crime
  • Enhance the safety features and appearance of the neighbourhood
  • Decide on ways to handle any civil emergencies that may occur
  • Know when and how to contact Police, other emergency services or support agencies
  • Liaise and co-operate with other community groups
  • Send a powerful message to criminals to go away and leave the neighbourhood in peace
