Coming together to prepare for emergencies and disruption can help everyone to cope better, particularly more vulnerable people.

Helping Your Community

There are simple ways you can help others, either by supporting some of the work already happening in your area or by starting something new. This doesn’t mean doing the job of the emergency services. It's about making sensible preparations so that all the skills, knowledge and commitment in your community can make as much difference as possible when needed.

This section contains information and advice about the ways that individuals, groups and local businesses can support their communities through challenging situations.
