Safer Neighbourhood Forums (formerly known as Neighbourhood Action Groups – NAGs) are multi-agency problem-solving bodies in the UK which are focused on tackling the top priorities as identified by their communities.
SNFs are made up of volunteer representatives from the community. They bring together organisations and partners like residents, the police, local authorities, businesses and schools and normally meet every 4 to 8 weeks. The Oxford Road SNF meets at the Oasis, Baker Street or the Salvation Army in Oxford Road.
SNFs are key to the success of neighbourhood policing. They plan on behalf of the community and organise tasks to be completed. This improves community safety and reassurance and reduces crime, disorder, disproportionate fear of crime, and local traffic issues.
