Bridge Watch Expression of Interest
The areas of London, on and around the Thames and the bridges, are amongst the most popular attractions in the country. This popularity can and does extend to behaviour that leads to people, for a host of reasons, to put themselves in harm’s way. In this role, you could help address public health and safety issues in the areas surrounding the Bridges of the City of London.
Incidents involving people suffering mental crisis and indicating intent to enter the water from these sites, account for a rising number of incidents around Thames bridges annually. The Bridge Watch Programme aims to provide a ‘physical presence’ of teams of volunteers that will ‘patrol’ the areas on and around the bridges of London and who have a brief to engage with anybody indicating intent to enter the water.
Thank you for your expression of interest, we will be in contact soon.
