What is Societal Resilience? – Societal resilience empowers the whole of society, including individuals, families, businesses, sporting and social clubs, cultural groups, educational establishments, institutions and religious groups to become involved in developing how they can become more resilient. Everyone should be given the opportunity to get involved.


We have all seen the photos of the results of flooding, storms, extreme heat and unusual weather patterns in the news.

How well prepared are you and your communities to deal with these events if and when they happen?
