Connect2Protect National Event – Resources from the event

In July 2017 we hosted our Connect2Protect event attended by Neighbourhood Watch members, partners and key stakeholders from across the country.

The successful event kicked off with an inspirational speech from Sarah Newton MP, Minister for Vulnerability, Safeguarding and Countering Extremism who detailed Government priorities in line with the Modern Crime Prevention Strategy and the continued importance of Neighbourhood Watch.

This message was reiterated by NHWN Chair Lynn Farrar, who highlighted the way forward for the movement in light of new and emerging threats.

Attendees also heard first hand examples of work undertaken by volunteers from across the movement including support for vulnerable elder people suffering from dementia, innovative partnership working undertaken in Lancashire and the growing problem of fraud and cybercrime taken on by Sussex Neighbourhood Watch.

The event enabled attendees to network, exchange ideas and best practice, directed by expert partners from various fields, including youth engagement, hate crime and diversity.

Presentations from the day are available below.

We wish to thank all of those attending and involved in supporting the event.
