Streetwatchers reclaim the streets of Weyhe


The agreed objectives were to reduce current levels of anti-social behaviour and to improve the wellbeing of young people in Weyhe.

The solution chosen was to deal with the anti-social behaviour through a co-production approach. This involved appointing ‘streetwatchers’ who would approach young people where they meeting up and talking to them. The basic message they gave was: “We want you to have fun – and you can even do it here. However, there are some rules you have to co-operate with, if you want to stay here”.
