All about Harrow’s Neighbourhood Champions

Neighbourhood champions report issues on their street to the Harrow Council Neighbourhood Champions team so that issues can be resolved. The Champions can report to the Council via the website, by email or by phone.

Things that the Champions want to know about include:

  • General anti-social behaviour
  • Graffiti
  • Abandoned vehicles
  • Fly-tipping
  • Fly-posters
  • Potholes
  • Defective street lights
  • Abandoned vehicles
  • Noise nuisance
  • Pavement or road obstructions
  • Petty vandalism

Because a neighbourhood champion only covers the road in which they live, issues that need reporting are likely to be very minimal. There are no formal obligations to the role and volunteers can do as little or as much as they like. So even if you are working or out of the house during the day, it’s still a role you can do.

All new neighbourhood champions are given an induction on the scope of the role and will receive a free Welcome Resource Pack including a guidebook, folder and handy notebook and pen.

We’ll keep you informed about the scheme through a quarterly newsletter and there will be opportunities to meet with local councillors and Police representatives throughout the year so you can share you views.

You can apply to be a neighbourhood champion here.
