Community Safety is a big priority in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
We are here as dedicated Tower Hamlets Neighbourhood Watch Association to play a very important integral part that connects the community with our partners’ desire to make the borough safer.
Our borough is very diverse and includes a range of residents from the very poor to the very rich.
Tower Hamlets covers an area of 20 square kilometres (8 square miles) and has a population density of 16,778 people per square kilometre (km 2), based on the latest population estimates taken in mid-2020. That figure has increased by 3,839 people per km 2 over the past decade. Compared to England’s figures.
Tower Hamlets is divided into 20 Wards, which are called SNT wards for police and local democratic purposes. See the Councillors and Tower Hamlets police details, as well as our charity legal framework here.
We are especially keen to involve people who know luxury and/or the social housing service providers and can help make Neighbourhood Watch a key ingredient in every housing development. Furthermore we must increase diversity representation.
According to our constitution our objects are
