Whether you want to improve links to the community, gain publicity or simply help improve your area, it makes perfect sense for your business to sponsor or support your local Neighbourhood Watch and Home Watch groups.
Local sponsorship & support
Lots of companies help out their local Neighbourhood Watch and Home Watch schemes, either with funding or in-kind resources such as printing, photocopying, use of meeting rooms, legal and marketing advice, catering, or products and services relating to your business or organisation.
It’s a great way for local businesses to forge links with their communities and contribute to making those communities the best places they can be. Remember, all the people in Neighbourhood Watch and Home Watch groups volunteer their time and energies for that reason. You might feel that you simply want to do the same.
But there are lots of business incentives too. The links you form with local people may mean they bring their private business to you later. You can also offer your services in exchange for publicity. And when Neighbourhood Watch and Home Watch groups are successful, they can improve areas to such an extent that property prices go up and local funding and investment opportunities increase.
If you’re interested in finding Neighbourhood or Home Watch groups in your area to help, you can use our scheme search. Or you can ask your local Neighbourhood Policing Team about schemes in your area.
National sponsorship & support
There are also a wide variety of corporate sponsorship opportunities available with NHWN nationally. These include our website, newsletter, literature, conferences, messaging service and publicity materials and we would be happy to discuss your requirements with you. There is a broad scope of possibilities from straightforward sponsorship agreements to customised projects for mutual benefit.
