Posted October 11th, 2023 by SimpliSafe

SimpliSafe®, maker of award-winning security systems, partners with Neighbourhood Watch Network (CIO no. 1173349), the charity supporting the largest grassroots voluntary movement for crime prevention and community cohesion, to further help home and neighbourhoods be a safer place to live for everyone.

The two organisations will work together over the coming year to provide guidance, support and research around the best ways to protect your home and your community. Neighbourhood Watch members will receive exclusive discounts on SimpliSafe security systems, as well as expert advice regarding burglary prevention and home security. Additionally, SimpliSafe will also donate a number of home security systems each year to households who are disadvantaged and vulnerable members of the community. 

John Haywards-Cripps, CEO of Neighbourhood Watch Network, said: “SimpliSafe is a trusted brand that has committed to its mission of making Every Home Secure, and offers a range of affordable security options for every type of home. We are delighted to build a new and exciting relationship with SimpliSafe as its first charity partner, to further our goal of empowering households to secure their homes and neighbourhoods and take an active step in preventing burglaries in local areas. For our Neighbourhood Watch supporters and volunteers, this partnership brings opportunities to extend our work in local communities, as well as offering an alternative flexible smart security solution.”

Jonathan Wall, VP, UK Managing Director of SimpliSafe, said: “Neighbourhood Watch has been helping communities for 40 years and we are excited for them to be SimpliSafe UK’s first charity partner. 

“No home is exactly the same and there’s nothing more important than keeping your family and home safe. With a range of advanced security products that can be tailored and the option of simple DIY or professional installation, Neighbourhood Watch members can continue to take control of their home’s security. 

“It’s fulfilling to know that you’re helping people every day and providing them with extra peace of mind. Together, we want to help improve crime rates and continue our mission to make ‘every home secure’.”

There is much to look forward to as a result of this exciting new partnership, including a large-scale hardware donation event for a local community in the new year, SimpliSafe’s sponsorship of Neighbourhood Watch’s National Crime and Community Survey 2023; and regular fundraising events by SimpliSafe’s staff for Neighbourhood Watch.
