Explore our past, present and future journey
As you may already know, we are celebrating our 40th anniversary of building stronger communities this year. We are immensely proud of the journey we have embarked on together during these four decades to get us to where we are today. It goes without saying that we couldn’t have done it without the support of the public by our side all the way and the unwavering support of our dedicated army of volunteers, some of which have been volunteering with us for the entire 40 years.
Our journey through the past 40 years demonstrates the importance of neighbours coming together to build strong and resilient communities. Over the years, our communities have faced significant challenges from economic crises, cyber threats, floods and pandemics. We know that together, we are stronger, so to celebrate this landmark anniversary, we’ve launched an interactive timeline reflecting our rich past, strong present position, and future ambition to be the authoritative voice on community-based crime and the first step in connecting communities.
But don’t take our word for it; we invite you to let us know what you think
The past 40 years have seen the introduction of the internet, the opening of the Channel Tunnel, the first women priests in the Church of England, civil partnerships for same-sex couples, and seven different prime ministers. We believe we’ve remained relevant throughout this time by adapting and responding to the changing needs of communities and crime.
But what do you think? To find that out, we’re running a short survey across England and Wales for members and non-members alike. Your answers will be anonymous and help us identify positives we can build on and areas we may need to do better. To add to this, you could be in for a chance of winning £25 by completing the survey.
The survey will be open for three weeks (25th April – 15th May 2022), and initial results will be shared at the Neighbourhood Watch National Crime Conference held on 31st May 2022.
25th April – 15th May 2022
Please spread the word - we want to gain the broadest possible range of responses representing the diversity of England and Wales, especially those in cities and high crime areas. Please help us by sharing this survey link with your friends, family and networks.
