Resilient Communities

Local community councils and individuals who are prepared and able to respond effectively, can deal with local issues, such as:

  • clearing snow from pathways and community facilities
  • placing sandbags and domestic floodgates in risk areas to prevent flooding
  • delivering supplies during severe weather if you have a suitable vehicle
  • provide hot meals and assistance within community centres and village halls
  • activate flood signage in their areas
  • provide information to us in an emergency

Check our Resilient Communities map to see if there is an active community resilience group in your area.
