Block co-ordinators

Block co-ordinators are volunteers who help to connect the neighbourhood, keep communication flowing and ensure that neighbours look out for each other. Specific tasks include:


  1. Represent your block on the NHW committee and liaise between residents and the committee.
  2. Keep a register of the names and contact details of the people on your block, and share it with the NHW.
  3. Identify additional street co-ordinators if the block is too large for one person.
  4. Collect voluntary levies for the NHW and for the Rosebank and Mowbray Civic Association.
  5. Establish a communications chain (telephone/SMS/e-mail/Whatsapp) for your block, and keep it updated.
  6. Visit and invite new members to join.


  1. Notify your block of meetings/training sessions/workshops.
  2. Gather interesting topics and snippets for newsletters.
