WATCH Ltd

WATCH Ltd is a charitable organisation based within the community and voluntary sector, directed by a management committee of local residents and people working in the area (run by the community for the community) with the mission statement ‘To seek to secure coordinate and manage resources for the social, economic and environmental improvement of the area for the benefit of people living and working in Hillfields’. We were established 12years ago to work towards the regeneration of a deprived inner city area, which had since the 1980’s suffered from high levels of unemployment, riots and unrest where drug dealing and prostitution were rife and local people feared and suffered from high levels of crime. Local people had had enough and were eager to work alongside the City Council, Developers, PCT, Housing Associations, Police and other partners to bring around the necessary changes.

As with any organisation working within the Community and Voluntary sector, WATCH recognises the need to adapt to meet changing demands and priorities of its partner organisations, whilst maintaining its local focus and responding to needs identified within the Centre.
