We have launched a partnership with BT to help them spread the message about Digital Voice to remote and harder-to-reach communities. Our aim is to help those who have a landline or no access to the internet to understand what the switch means for them, and what they need to do to stay connected. This is a no cost change for all and really simple for the vast majority, which can be easily explained and implemented.

The project has begun, and we have a project manager, and coordinators recruited for the South East, South West and Wales. Now we're looking for coordinators to work in the North West and East of England. We want local people who are already living in these areas, who have a head-start in terms of local knowledge of their communities and can work with our existing volunteer framework.

Vicky Hicks, Head of Engagement, Digital Voice Programme at BT Group, said: “It is important that all our customers feel supported during this industrywide switchover to digital landlines. This partnership with Neighbourhood Watch is part of our wider regional engagement campaign for Digital Voice, as we look to raise awareness of the programme for our customers whether they live in rural or urban areas.”

“BT Group is committed to making sure that everyone has the support they need to make the switch to Digital Voice as seamless as possible. This partnership with Neighbourhood Watch allows us to reach even more people, ensuring that everybody has access to the best landline technology.”


Diversity: Neighbourhood Watch welcomes applications from all sections of the community and actively encourages diversity to maximise achievements, creativity, and good practice. We positively welcome and seek to ensure we achieve diversity in our workforce and that all job applicants and employees receive equal and fair treatment, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability or nationality. We encourage applications from BAME and disabled people as they are currently underrepresented in the organisation.
