in the Village

Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) in the Chilterns area has just launched a partnership with Street Associations, a project supported by Bucks County Council (BCC) designed to help residents – particularly the elderly and vulnerable – more easily find the support services they need. This brings the promise of improved local support for residents in all roads with a NHW Scheme that participates.

Helen Cavill, the Street Association Project Lead for BCC said:” NHW is a perfect partner. Coordinators already know their members, and particularly those most likely to benefit from advice through the Street Association directory of services. With their personal knowledge of residents, they are ideally placed to provide our simple signposting at a local level”. Coordinators participating are given a directory that helps them point anyone needing help in the right direction.

NHW is delighted with the initial take-up by Coordinators. David Alder, Multi-Scheme Administrator for the Chiltern area was enthusiastic: “The Street Association package is so easy for our Coordinators to take on board. I’m doing so myself for my personal Scheme in Chalfont St. Peter. It will give me, like any other Coordinator, the ability simply to be more helpful to residents, going a bit beyond our usual focus on security. It’s a great concept!”.

If your road does not yet have a NHW Scheme, or it has one where you would like to see the Street Association helpful signposting added to it, contact David Alder at .
