Charlton Central Streets

Welcome

Welcome to the official website of Charlton Central Neighbourhood Watch (CCNW). We hope you will use this site to learn about our Watch and how the residents within our 13 streets work together to make Central Charlton a safer place to live.

CCNW is part of the national 'Watch' network whose motto is 'building secure, confident communities'. We wholeheartedly support this motto in CCNW. We are also affiliated to the Royal Borough of Greenwich Neighbourhood Watch organisation. The CCNW is supported by Charlton Central Residents Association

Our Watch has been set up to promote community cohesion. Research has shown that a strong neighbourhood watch can reduce crime in an area. We hope CCNW contributes to a reduction in crime but this is not our only aspiration. We promote good neighbourliness through keeping residents in touch with issues of community safety. We provide a conduit for exchanging information between residents themselves and with our local Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team.

If you have not already joined, become part of CCNW now and spread the word that by working together we can make Charlton Central a safer and happier place to live.

It is FREE to join. See Contact Us.
