Wardens Scheme

Community Wardens Scheme Community Foundation has set up a Community Wardens scheme which will seek to improve people’s quality of life and help reduce crime, by reducing fear of crime and tackling low level anti-social behaviour and environmental crime.


Building on the government’s ‘Big Society’ and the localism agenda, our Community Wardens scheme is a new innovation in community involvement and social action to keep our streets and estates cleaner, greener and safer. Community Foundation is working to offer people who are on the DWP Community Work Placement an opportunity to use their time to help improve our neighbourhoods.We will be piloting the scheme initially covering Lozells, East Handworth and Aston.


Community Wardens will be uniformed and operate Mon- Fri between 10am – 4pm.  Wardens will be undertaking the following activities:
