Flood Resilience

Using funding awarded from the Berkshire Community Foundation’s Berkshire Flood Recovery Fund, CCB has been supporting the work of the Swallowfield Flood Resilience Group. A guide has been produced that has been designed to help communities with the formation and operation of a flood resilience group, based on this group’s experiences.

It is not a definitive guide that will work everywhere and should not be seen as a ‘one size fits all’ approach to assessing and addressing the risk of flooding in all communities. It is presented as just one example of how one community approached the issue, in the hope that other communities can benefit from their work. The whole process has taken nine years so far and the group is still working hard.
