NHW Coordinator Workshops

I am pleased to invite you to our next round of training workshops for Coordinators.  These have proved very popular in the past and have always oversubscribed.  I am delighted to announce that we have a much larger capacity now and hop to see you all there.

Yet again, to enable our volunteers a chance to attend, these will be held online and I am pleased to announce that we have the sessions over a period of two  weeks and the option to attend our afternoon or evening sessions.  We appreciate that not all of you will be able to attend all of the sessions, but we would really like to see as many of you there as possible.  

The session will be held online – via Zoom and they will be on a variety of topics.  In the past events we held a listening event, looking at traininginduction and roles and as a result of that, we have developed our Knowledge Hub, which will be launched at our Summer Seminars next week.  The feedback from the trial area has been amazing, with great reviews on the content, support and the ability to talk with other Coordinators across the network.

The workshops are on 23rd, 25th and 31st August – 14.00 – 15.30 and 2nd, 6th and 10th September 17.30 – 19.00.

Running effective community visual audit – this topic will look at how you can involve all the community and partners to look at the community in which you live and identify potential issues which could increase risk of crime happening in that area.  What you do about it and how to measure success.

How to effectively work with local partners – there are many local groups, individuals and organisations which as a Coordinator you could partner with.  In this workshop, we guide you through the process of identifying what types of partners there are in our communities, what the benefits of working with partners in our community and how to develop existing partnerships.

Listening event – moving NW forward – At NW we have been busy looking at how people perceive NW and what we can do to change the perception of busy bodies and out of date, to be more relevant and meaningful to our communities.  As we approach our 40th year, this is the opportune time to show our communities what active Neighbourhood Watch schemes can do.  We did a survey in the spring about perception and we would like your input and ideas about how we go about making that change from an outdated organisation, to a vibrant, active and much needed asset in our community.
