What we do
CADRA works hard with a number of local groups to improve the quality of life in Caversham and the surrounding District.
Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Alerts
Thames Valley Alerts is the new Community Messaging system for receiving crime and policing updates for your area. The state-of-the-art system allows anyone who signs up to chose what updates they receive and how they would like to receive it; options include receiving information via text, telephone and email. You can also filter the updates you receive by specifying the priority level of the messages.

Neighbourhood Action Groups (NAGs)
Neighbourhood Action Groups (NAGs) are made up of volunteer representatives from the local community. They bring together organisations and partners including residents, the neighbourhood police, local authorities, businesses and schools, and assist in planning local neighbourhood policing tasks based on priorities identified by the community.
Caversham Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG)
Dates for the 2017 NAG meetings are:
Members of the general public are welcome to attend these meetings. The priorities for the NAG and the Neighbourhood Police Team are based on local surveys undertaken every two years.
Environmental Visual Audit (EVA) 1st quarter 2017
The Environmental Audit is a tool that is used to try to improve the appearance of the area for eyesores like graffiti and fly tipping. Members of the public are welcome to join these inspections and it is a useful way of resolving concerns in your local area. However, owing to central budget controls, the EVAs are not at this point planned to be continued beyond the end of March.
Dates and meeting locations are:-
Mapledurham and Thames Wards:
Caversham and Peppard Wards:
Community First Responders
If you don't fancy the idea of actually attending an emergency situation, groups always need volunteers who are willing to help in other capacities.
