Volunteer to support children’s reading

Could you help a child learn how to read and make a lasting difference to their life?

Become a virtual reading volunteer with ‘ABC (Assisting Berkshire Children) to read’ and you can do just that.

Some children may have fallen behind with their reading during the school closures, but as a volunteer you’ll receive training and support to help children catch up and build their skills and confidence.

To find out more, or to apply to be a volunteer, visit the ‘ABC to read’ website

Eyes, ears.....and Brain



The lockdown has resulted in many neighbourhoods drawing closer together in supporting local residents with needs, and in neighbours spending a lot more time talking to each other over fences or across the road. This has improved community spirit no end, and a great way to keep this spirit alive is for residents to join their local Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or start up a new scheme if there is not already one covering their respective street.

Neighbourhood Watch is not just about looking out the window and being alert for any crime in the neighbourhood, it is much more than that. It serves as a valuable resource for crime prevention, in supporting the Police with things such as local home security surveys, installing crime prevention aids in homes for the vulnerable and elderly especially, helping those vulnerable and elderly residents with any other needs, and in drawing residents together in supporting one another.
The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association is making great strides in reactivating and expanding Neighbourhood Watch within the various parishes of Windsor & Ascot. Its Facebook page (@WindsorAscotNHW) is receiving multiple enquiries from interested residents and serves as a means to highlight local issues relating to crime and residents in need. New NHW schemes are continuously being set up with active Coordinators, and residents within those scheme areas can now benefit from the new initiatives being introduced by Neighbourhood Watch and Thames Valley Police.
To search for your nearest NHW scheme, or to set up a new scheme, visit and enter your postcode. 

For any questions relating to Neighbourhood Watch please contact the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association at
