Dear  Citizen

SAY HELLO TO NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH WEEK, 30th May – 5th June 2022
This year, John Bishop invites us all to ‘say hello’ to Neighbourhood Watch Week as it kick-starts the Month of Community. It’s a chance to come together with neighbours, with friends, with people you haven’t met, and to ‘say hello’ by making new connections. Building these connections in our community is one of the foundations of Neighbourhood Watch!  Learn more about Neighbourhood Watch Week and listen to what John Bishop has to say here.

As part of this celebratory week in such a flagship year, we are thrilled to invite you to join us online for our NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH CRIME AND COMMUNITY CONFERENCE 2022. Learn more about the conference on page 3 of our special edition newsletter here, or book your place now, click here.


BECOME A NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH NETWORK TRUSTEE
Our voluntary Trustee Board is responsible for ensuring our charity is well run and is held accountable for:
  • pursuing its charitable objectives and complying with its Constitution, charity law, and any other relevant legislation or regulations
  • applying its resources wisely to achieve impact and value-for-money
  • demonstrating its values and maintaining public confidence in its reputation
  • working strategically by setting policy, defining goals and targets, and measuring its impact.
We are recruiting new trustees to our board, and we recognise that increasing the diversity of our board so that it better reflects the communities we serve will help us do a better job as a charity. Therefore, we are very keen to involve young people, people from the LGBTQ+ community, those with lived experience of disability or who have been victims of crime, and people from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. We will support people for whom this would be their first trustee role to learn about the responsibilities of trusteeship.

We are keen to hear from people who can help us with fundraising and income generation or who have experience in marketing and communications and can advise us on engaging with a broader and more diverse audience, including better use of social media. We are also seeking someone with knowledge of charity finance (or general accounting knowledge who would be willing to learn about the charitable context). We would also like to have one trustee on our board with knowledge of policing and public safety in England and Wales and trends in policy development.

See the attachments for more information.

JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS
We are looking for Neighbourhood Watch streets that have celebrated every Jubilee ideally since the Silver Jubilee in 1977 to interview its residents, old and new, and feature photos of the street party over the years. If this is you, please email enquiries@ourwatch.org.uk.

Best wishes
