8. Producing publicity materials
Good publicity material will get people interested in your scheme. You can now make posters, letters and more using our ready made design templates in the Members Area of our website.
Whether you want to publicise your own scheme, Neighbourhood and Home Watch in general or a specific event, we have a wide selection of designs for you to customise, download and print. It's easy and the designs are attention grabbling, professional and friendly.
Make your own activity posters and flyers
Whatever you need to publicise as part of your Neighbourhood Watch activities, we’ve got a design to fit the bill. The customise options let you choose the colour, edit the title and add any information you think is important. There’s even a handy preview function to make sure you're happy with the design before you print. You can also save your design to come back to and make more another time.
Ready to print campaign posters
Keep Neighbourhood Watch awareness high by printing and displaying the posters from our national campaign.
Letters and newsletters
There's a selection of editable Word templates for letters and newsletters you can download and use on your own computer. Some are pre-written, helping you start a scheme and attract members, but you can also just use the templates for the letterhead and write your own text.
Some guidelines on Neighbourhood Watch messages
Remember: our work is about feeling safe, not fear of crime. We avoid the language of fear, aggression and suspicion (vigilant, keeping watch, stamping out crime etc.) and emphasise positive solutions and participation. It’s about people coming together as communities to look after each other and create safer, happier places to live. Read more about our Tone of Voice guidelines.
