An August 2013 survey published by the Neighbourhood & Home Watch Network (England & Wales) shows that the movement plays an important part in reducing people's feelings of loneliness and isolation
There were positive comments about NHW but also indications that it is perceived more as a crime prevention-focused organisation rather than a social group, and a number of respondents felt that the NHW in their area is not very active or engaging.
Neighbourhood Watch members are less likely than non-members to feel lonely or isolated; they are more likely to know their neighbours, to help them and to volunteer for other things within their community. A number of people commented that they would behave in the same way towards their neighbours with or without NHW.

The most important thing is the health & wellbeing of our staff & customers...
