We know that people who are connected to others in their community are more likely to have a sense of well being, a perception of safety and a better quality of life, than those who are isolated.
Isolation can lead to feeling disconnected from the world around you.
In traditional neighbourhoods neighbours can usually see each other. They may not be friends or get together but visual surveillance gives them a sense of ‘who is who’ in the neighbourhood.
This is a particular challenge in vertical neighbourhoods. And an increasing challenge as more residential high rises are built.
Neighbourhood Watch Victoria provides evidence based research on crime prevention, social media and traditional educational collateral, together with the outline of programs that the Group may want to manage – such as a Safe Plate Day in the basement.
We want to work with those in the industry to form vertical neighbourhoods.
