Why join a Neighbourhood Support group?
There’s strength in numbers. A Neighbourhood Support group brings local people together to share information, ideas and connectedness. Together, you can assist one another to:
- Solve local problems
- Reduce crime
- Minimise anti-social behaviour
- Support victims of crime
- Learn to prepare and cope with civil defence emergencies
- Engage Police, other emergency services or support agencies
- Liaise and co-operate with other like-minded community groups
