Neighbourhood Watch Scheme Set up for Lozells
Community Foundation has set up a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme covering most of the Lozells Area. All residents of the area can become a member of the scheme, and help in making sure that the area is strong, clean, and a safe place to live.
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about crime awareness, it's about supporting communities and tackling issues within them. The effect on our communities caused by Youth Isolation; Loneliness and Vulnerability is evident and we have developed this section with this in mind. Making you aware of these issues will enable you to be proactive in your community to help those in our communities that need support.
Benefits of Neighbourhood Watch Scheme:
• Reduce / prevent local crime & disorder
