February 2013 saw the Neighbourhood Network survey its registered members on the benefit of registration. The survey responses were very positive with the majority of members acknowledging that they found the communication from the NN beneficial with the feeling that the NN was keeping people better informed of local safety priorities, community safety advice and events. 82% of those surveyed also cited email as their main form of contact.
In March 2013 the Neighbourhood Network secured questions relating to the awareness of the charity within the Peoples Panels Survey, answered by 2217 across the Humberside region. Results showed that 68% of those surveyed were not aware of the NN, however 81% stated that they would like to receive communications, thus presenting potential opportunities for the Neighbourhood Network.
April 2013 saw the first awards ceremony being held. The remit for the awards was to recognise and thank the contribution made by member groups for the good of their communities, often in their own time. 26 nominations were received from groups across the city wards, all very different, but sharing the goal of aiming to make Hull a better place to live and work.
In July 2013 it was documented that 290 groups were registered with the Neighbourhood Network.
August 2013 saw an unsuccessful bid to the Big Lottery, seeing one staff member return back to Humberside Police.
