Title
Coordinators Get Together

Describe your best practice
We wanted to network with other Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators within our local area to share ideas and good practice. We will be arranging our first informal get together in October 2019

What did you do and why?
We asked our district engagement officer to send a letter to the Coordinators in our area giving them my email address and asking them to get in touch should they want to network. This would be an informal get together to meet, exchange ideas and offer peer support to one another within our local area.

Duration of the project
Ongoing

What worked well?
We received very favourable responses so given the great feedback we are planning to arrange a coffee morning and a chance to get together.

How did you overcome any challenges?
The main issue we found was finding out about other Neighbourhood Watches in our area.

Support is therefore required from your Force Area Association to assist you getting your contact details to other watches so initial contact can be made.

How did you cover any costs?
None
