How you benefit

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
