Flood Guidance for Clubs

Flood Recovery - please feedback!

Cumbria’s communities and voluntary organisations have played – and continue to play – a huge and very valuable role in the recovery from the flooding in December 2015.

The Community Recovery Group that forms part of Cumbria’s Flood Recovery structures, is undertaking a survey to collect information on how these groups have been involved in in the recovery from the floods of December 2015. The information will be used both to inform the planning for future emergencies and to explain the ways in which communities and local organisations contributed to recovery.

Please respond by Wednesday 1 June 2016.
