Manningham Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) was established in 1985 and is run by about 700 volunteers.  It is a community-based crime prevention program which aims to improve the quality of life within our area by minimising preventable crime and promoting closer community ties. The program relies on the community and the police working together to achieve these aims.
The aim of the Manningham NHW Partnership Program is to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with local businesses that assists both parties to achieve their objectives.  The Program was established to fund the printing of our crime prevention newsletters which are delivered by our volunteers to 28,000 households in Manningham every second month. Our partners obtain certain marketing benefits for a fee which funds our newsletters.
To obtain more information about the Partnership Program please contact the Chairman, Geoff Kloot on Mob: 0419 432 022 or by Email:
