3rd Annual Resilient Communities Conference – 18th July 2019

We’d like to invite you to the 3rd Annual Resilient Communities Conference, run by Lincolnshire County Council’s Emergency Planning Service.


It will take place between 9.30am – 3.30pm on 18 July 2019 at British Red Cross, Unity House, 22 Tollemarche Road South, Spittlegate Level, Grantham.

 

This year’s conference will cover topics, including:

 

  • Knowing and understanding your Community and how you can help it become more resilient workshop
  • A year on since the ResilientLincs Programme Launch – what has happened and how you have shaped it
  • A practical ‘volunteer’ session with the Environment Agency
  • Places of safety – following on from lessons learnt at Boston 2013 and Grenfell, a practical workshop on the finer details of activating and managing a rest centre

 

The theme of the conference is ‘Understanding your community’ and, as such, we will be looking at what makes our communities unique and, by working together, how we can improve resilience in more ways than just emergency response.

 

Last year, we launched the ‘ResilientLincs Programme’. This was aimed at streamlining the way information is delivered to and from you, the community, in times of crisis. This year we will be able to share with you the progress and key findings.

 

Throughout the day, you will be able to meet representatives from the British Red Cross, Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, Lincolnshire Police, LIVES,  the Environment Agency, members of Lincolnshire Volunteer Coordination Group and most importantly, the community. This year the conference will again be opened by Cllr Nick Worth, Lincolnshire County Council’s portfolio holder for emergency planning.

 

The conference is open to all community groups, town and parish councils, individuals and voluntary organisations with free tickets being made available on Eventbrite at:
