Press release 01/24
We have great news! Community Links Bromley has been awarded a grant under round two of the Mayor’s Community Resilience Fund. The Community Resilience Fund is part of ongoing work to ensure London remains resilient and prepared for future challenges.
The funding supports community organisations to work together with their local authority emergency planning teams to best prepare for emergencies in their London boroughs. We will be working with the in partnership with the London Borough of Bromley Emergency Planning and Corporate Resilience Lead to deliver this project.
Our project entitled Building Back Better: Resilient Bromley will engage, test and learn, and co-produce new approaches to local community resilience in Bromley. An engagement programme with local voluntary and community organisations is planned. This will assess current understanding of risks and to pilot the local co-production of a community emergency plan in partnership with local voluntary and community organisations. Central to this will be assessing community understanding of available resources, skills and facilities and communications.
We join a network of 22 community organisations partnering with their respective emergency planning teams to delivery emergency preparedness strategies as unique and diverse as the needs of each of the participating London boroughs.
