National Pubwatch Scheme Locator

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.

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’
