A vital part of sustaining your Neighbourhood Watch scheme is likely to be seeking funding. This may be to fund your core running costs, such as stationery, venue hire for meetings or purchasing stickers and signs, or it may be to fund a local project you have devised to meet a need within your community, such as transforming a small area into a pocket park, holding a street social or organising a crime prevention seminar.

This area of our website aims to support you in your fundraising for your local scheme. If you have any specific questions that are not covered here, please email our Head of Fundraising Amy Mawby.

Please keep us updated on your successes and/or difficulties, so we can continue to make this area of our website as useful to you, our members, as possible.
