The Community Resilience Programme, in partnership with Aviva, currently works with communities in Thames Ward, Barking London. The project aims to create community-led approaches to reduce the risk of emergencies, and better prepare, respond and recover from crisis.
Our project aims to increase resilience by engaging local people in emergency preparedness, response and recovery planning in their community of Thames Ward.
The three main goals are:
- Engagement: Communities more engaged in emergency preparedness, response and recovery.
- Awareness: Stronger awareness of community needs and assets.
- Cooperation: Stronger cooperation between local authorities, emergency services and communities.
