Those partnered with and supported by the police:
As an independent charity, we work towards a world where people affected by crime or traumatic events get the support they need and the respect they deserve. We help people feel safer and find the strength to move beyond crime. Our support is free, confidential and tailored to your needs.
We have teams of volunteers across the country promoting the charity and raising necessary funds. Each team has a wide range of skill and expertise on board, often boasting senior professionals, law enforcement partners and community representatives. They develop marketing campaigns to raise awareness of our services and run local fundraising initiatives.
We search for missing people on behalf of the friends and family left behind and provide specialised support to ease their heartache and confusion. Our free, confidential helpline is available 24 hours a day by phone, text and email to support missing children and adults, and their loved ones.
The aim is to bring neighbours together to create strong, friendly, active communities where crime and anti-social behaviour are less likely to happen.
Our vision is that of a caring society that is focused on trust and respect in which people are safe from crime and enjoy a good quality of life. Neighbourhood Watch is about making sure that no-one has to feel afraid, vulnerable or isolated in the place where they live.
Cinnamon Network is a “faith-based but not faith-biased” charity that partners with police forces and other civic agencies to help them work with churches to reduce social welfare demand on statutory services. Cinnamon Network has developed a menu of best practice community projects and also evidence to demonstrate their impact.
National Crime Agency Specials
The National Crime Agency leads the UK’s fight against serious and organised crime.
At the NCA we’ve been inspired by the success of the Special Constabulary in policing. Building on this success, we too enhance our workforce through the use of volunteer crime-fighters, which we call ‘NCA Specials’.
