Neighbourhood Watch has been awarded the prestigious Queen's Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award in recognition of their work as one of the largest voluntary movements across England and Wales.

Neighbourhood Watch or Home Watch as it is known in some areas, is one of best known crime preventative initiatives across the UK with studies showing a 79% decrease in crime where the initiative is in place.

With approximately 170,000 co-ordinators covering 3.9 million households, volunteer community advocates are critical in the fight against crime.
