It is an umbrella organisation set up by volunteers to help the collection of individual HomeWatch groups within the area i.e. Maghull, Lydiate & Sefton Village.
It aims to assist, advise, educate & encourage local residents with home security and make them aware of the general criminal activity to which they and their homes could be subjected, in order to reduce the incidence & fear of crime.
HomeWatch is 36 years old (it began in Mollington, Cheshire in 1982) and has helped reduce crime wherever residents have set up groups.
HomeWatch groups began forming in Maghull shortly after 1984. 1990 had 25 groups = 1,191 households whilst in 2017 we have 150 groups = 4,000 households.
With more members we could make it even better!
£1 a year with a further £1 to join.
All Maghull HomeWatch members receive our bi-monthly Newsletter and will receive a membership certificate.
No newsletter = NOT a member & NO discount on your home insurance.
Note: If you accidentally (but falsely) claim to be in MHWA, your insurance company may REFUSE to pay-out in the event of a burglary or any other claim you needed to make!
"Home Watch is the best known and most effective example of the community and police working together to prevent crime, reduce the fear of crime and improve quality of life.
A local Home Watch scheme could help address not only those crimes traditionally associated with Home Watch such as burglary and car crime but also help with the problems of youths causing annoyance and incidents of anti-social behaviour in the area."
