|The survey is open to the public across England and Wales, regardless of whether they live in a Neighbourhood Watch area or not.
The results will enable the Neighbourhood Watch Network to better understand on a national and regional level crime, fear of crime and benchmark whether membership to a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or living in a Neighbourhood Watch area, has an impact on levels of crime, concern about crime, neighbourliness, and the willingness of communities to work together.
Last year the survey received over 3000 responses and they are aiming to receive a good balance of responses from Neighbourhood Watch members and non-members which will enable them to compare experiences between these two groups.
A good response in all regions will ensure they can publish a national report and provide individual regions with their own reports.
All data will be anonymised and aggregated and will be used by Neighbourhood Watch to ensure their work is effective, inclusive, and representative.
The survey closes on the 16th of November.
