  • The Guide to Emergency Planning for Community Groups shows how communities can make that difference by coming together to support each other. It can be used by any community organisation - or by a group of people in a community who want to be more prepared. This guide, along with detailed guidance on how to start and develop your plan, has some helpful examples of good practice.
  • Check that your community group has the insurance cover it needs to do the things it wants to do with confidence. The following provides guidance on this: Insurance for Community Resilience Groups
  • Health and safety doesn't need to be complicated, and won't stop your group getting involved: Health and Safety for Community Resilience Groups.
