National Pubwatch is a voluntary organisation set up to promote best practice through supporting the work of local Pubwatch Schemes. Its aim is to achieve a safer drinking environment in all licensed premises throughout the UK.

“I have seen the devastating impact alcohol related violence can have on local communities. My father was the Chairman of his local Pubwatch and I saw first-hand the benefits the programme can have in bringing people together, developing ways to tackle the worst troublemakers and creating a safer night time economy.”

Karen Bradley MP, Minister for Preventing Abuse, Exploitation and Crime

‘National Pubwatch plays a key role in promoting good practice and supporting local Pubwatch schemes which can make a real difference to improving the safety of people working and socialising in our town and city centres’
