Who can join?

Anyone can become a member of Neighbourhood Watch. All we ask is that you are committed to working alongside your neighbours to help make the place where you live safer, friendlier and vibrant. We would like all members to join and support us in the spirit of our values: neighbourly, community-focused, inclusive, proactive, trusted and collaborative. Individual members do not have voting rights at Neighbourhood Watch Network but our members are at the heart of what we do and have a meaningful impact on the direction of Neighbourhood Watch Network through regular surveys, events and communication, plus your input at a local level.

Neighbourhood Watch groups in Barking & Dagenham, Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Flintshire, Harrow, Hertfordshire, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Redbridge, Richmond upon Thames, Tower Hamlets and Wandsworth use OWL as their messaging system and to manage schemes. You can join still join Neighbourhood Watch through our site to receive national messages. To receive local messages and join your local scheme contact OWL https://www.owl.co.uk/

What does it cost?

It’s free to join however some local schemes charge a small membership fee to cover their running costs. We are a charity that relies on voluntary income so always welcome donations to help the work of our small Central Support Team that assists our 90,000 volunteer coordinators.
