Can I become a Neighbourhood Watch volunteer if I am a Neighbours Unite Champion? What's the difference?
Yes. Both operate to improve neighbourhood connection, however Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) is administered through the State Neighbourhood Watch Office in Perth while Neighbours Unite is a City of Rockingham initiative with an informal application process.
What happens when I sign up?
Neighbours Unite Champions receive regular monthly newsletters.
How often can I apply to host a Neighbours Unite Activity and receive a reimbursement?
Households are eligible to receive one Neighbours Unite Activity reimbursement each year. The City would encourage neighbours to continue to host activities and stay connected throughout the year.
What if I don’t get along with my neighbour and want to be involved?
Neighbours include people across the road and those in your immediate street block and wider neighbourhood.
What happens if I move house?
Neighbours Unite Champions are contacted via email. Changes of email can be communicated to firstname.lastname@example.org.
