The Neighbourhood Network is a Hull based charity, that aims to support residents and partner agencies in reducing crime, developing a good community and creating a safe environmental to live in, where people are neighbourly and support one another.
The charity encourages community groups to join the network and hundreds have already registered from across Hull. These consist of Neighbourhood watch groups, tenant and resident associations, faith groups, community centres, schools, business and retail partnerships, community and voluntary sector organisations - however big or small - but have an interest in community safety.
Many groups achieve great things by coming together to make a positive difference - here are a few of the projects the Neighbourhood Network members have achieved in the past year
- held crime reduction events
- successfully applied for gating schemes
- received neighbourhood watch signs
- contributed information about those committing crime and anti social behaviour and helped to improve the look and feel of neighbourhoods
- contribution information to help Humberside Police make arrests
- created social media platforms to engage with residents
- organised community litter picks
- transformed waste land into areas of beauty
The aims of the Neighbourhood Network are
- to support and empower people aiming to create safer environments
- to be supported to other organisations helping communities to be more proactive in reducing crime
- to be trusted communicator and educator of key messages from community safety partners
- to be an introducer and facilitator of engagement between neighbourhood network members and safety partners
- to be a communication channel for members to spread their own message through neighbourhood network platforms
Our mission is that to work with and support you to make your communities safer
