Birmingham City Council Housing Liaison Boards

A Housing Liaison Board is a group of tenants, leaseholders, local residents, Councillors and housing staff who monitor and improve housing services in their local area.

The Housing Liaison Board (HLB) network now covers almost the entire city and has proved to be a very successful way for tenants and leaseholders to become involved.

Neighbourhood Watch

The main aim of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme is to create a partnership between the local community, the police and the local authority.

Neighbourhood Watch started in the UK in 1982 and there are now some 150,000 schemes running throughout the UK covering nearly five million households, which makes Neighbourhood Watch the largest voluntary movement in the country.

When you become part of Neighbourhood Watch, you don’t sign up to a specific programme. Every scheme is different because each is run by and for the members of its community, to meet that community’s specific needs.
