EHCVS is excited to be working with Hounslow Council’s Safer Communities team on this project designed to enable residents to actively tackle and prevent incidents of violent crime and anti-social behaviour in the Bedfont, Feltham, and Hanworth ward of Hounslow.

We are actively engaging with residents and local groups in these areas to identify reoccurring incidents that negatively impact their feeling of safety in their communities. This project aims to encourage to take a collaborative, cross-community, approach by connecting with others across the ward to reduce the impact of such incidents on individuals and communities in this part of Hounslow.

To do this, EHCVS will deliver a three-pronged approach to build the capacity of residents to eventually adopt a safer communities approach in their local area. These are:

  • Training
  • Capacity Building
  • Volunteering

Training

EHCVS will be providing five standalone training sessions for residents and local groups with a focus on building community resilience. This training will cover what community resilience is, how it is built, and useful tips to cultivate community resilience in your local area. These training sessions will last 90mins and take place both online and in-person in locations across the ward. Dates and locations of the trainings are as follow:

The purpose of these sessions is to hear from residents and identify issues that impact their feeling of safety in the area. You can view more information and sign up to sessions by clicking the links above.

Capacity Building

We want to encourage residents to connect with others and join together to take a proactive approach to preventing a particular serious crime or anti-social behaviour issue in their area. EHCVS capacity building team will assist residents in doing this by providing advice on how to form your own group to implement initiatives.

Volunteering

if you want to take a more hands-on approach, to improving safety in your community, EHCVS volunteering team are supporting residents into volunteering opportunities. You could become a safer communities champion, acting as a representative for the concerns of your communities whilst liaising with Hounslow Council’s Safer Communities team.
