As the Hull support for Neighbourhood Watch, the Neighbourhood Network works closely with the three other organisations supporting Neighbourhood Watch Groups in the Humberside Police region, creating a nationally recognised body which is the Humber Watch Association.
The Humber Watch Association allow each local support organisation – in Hull, East Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire – to come together in the sharing of best practice; develop a collective approach to addressing issues affecting local Neighbourhood Watch Groups; improve possible access to funding and develop long term strategy to increase wider community participation across the region.
The formation of the Humber Watch Association helps all organisations involved to develop more effective working with the police, for strategies to be aligned to keeping communities safe and for involvement from the public in creating safer neighbourhoods.
In June 2018, the first Humber Watch conference took place with over 100 Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators attending from across the Humberside Police region. Workshops took place, discussing issues affecting the different communities along with how each areas are addressing these issues. The conference had a positive impact with some great feedback and the need to organise similar future events.
In July 2022, the second HWA conference took place, again at the Country Park Inn, Hessle. This was attended by 80 Neighbourhood Watch representatives from across the Humber region and welcomed special guest Cheryl Spruce form the Central Support Team.
