For Horsham District Neighbourhood Watch Association
We are seeking a well organised and enthusiastic individual, to become our 'Lead Coordinator' to help organise all aspects of the Junior Neighbourhood Watch (JNHW) programs across the Horsham District.
Sessions are run by Neighbourhood Watch volunteers with help, where possible, from Sussex Police, local authority staff, county Emergency Planning staff and volunteer Magistrates. We just need someone to pull all these threads together and co-ordinate and organise the scheme across the District.
The highly successful Junior NHW Scheme is designed for Year 6 children (aged 10-11) to run as a voluntary after school activity. The sessions are booklet-led, with NHW volunteers leading the courses, supported by teachers and other volunteers.
We recognise that children may be victims of, or witness to crime today, and without proper guidance could develop into causes of crime in the future. We also recognise that children are great ambassadors to help spread good advice to their friends, parents and grandparents.

As the Lead Coordinator you will coordinate all aspects of organising
JNHW programs across all of Horsham District, which will include:
The Junior NHW Coordinator would be part of a friendly and supportive Committe grop of like-minded people with a common interest in supporting their communities. They are also welcome to join the Horsham NHW committee if he or she would like to, but this is NOT a requirement.
The role can be organised from home; in the main, there is no requirement to teach or be present at any sessions, however a presence at all sessions has been found to be of great benefit.
The role would require approximately 3-4 hours a week to deliver, varying from week to week, and would suit anyone with good administrative and organisational skills, who enjoys working with individuals and organisations to help make things happen!
An introduction and free training will be provided to the Lead Coordinator.
Teaching experience is NOT required.
Any experience of working with children, especially the Year 6 age group, would be helpful but is NOT essential.
Other NHW members and experienced school leaders will be available.
The Lead Coordinator and all JNHW program helpers will need to undergo an Enhanced DBS check, which will be funded by NHW.
