Self Assessment Tool

Neighbourhood Watch Network has developed a self assessment tool enabling you to make an informed assessment of how you are performing. The tool sets out five potential levels at which an association could be functioning in each of the areas that support Neighbourhood Watch activity.

Members of Force Area, Borough and District / Area Neighbourhood Watch associations are invited to use the tool to identify both strengths and areas for development in the way they work together and with their partners.

Associations can then use the tool to develop an action plan to help them best support their coordinators and grow and diversity the Neighbourhood Watch movement – a key aim of the organisation’s three-year strategy.

Jayne Pascoe, Head of Projects and Partnerships at Neighbourhood Watch Network, spearheaded the project “This is a tool for associations to use as they fit, to mould their activity around local priorities and ensure Neighbourhood Watch is delivering for local communities.”

The tool can be downloaded below alongside guidance about how to use it. Users can also download an action plan template and two case studies detailing how the tool was used in Cambridgeshire and Merton.
