Lunch & Learn – Communities Prepared

In the North East we are already starting to see the impact of extreme weather, environmental degradation and rising sea levels through flash floods. We need to ensure that we have the procedures and infrastructure in place to protect our communities, businesses and homes against the loss and damage these changes could bring.

With that in mind, today’s Lunch and Learn session with NEECCo was presented by Hannah Baker, Programme Manger from Communities Prepared who are within the Federation of Groundwork Trusts.

Communities Prepared are a leading a nationwide community resilience programme . They are equipping communities across the country with the knowledge and tools to effectively prepare for, respond to and recover from, emergencies such as flooding, snow, other severe weather events and utility failures.
