Community resilience groups

Community groups

We work with the Environment Agency and Surrey County Council to prepare local communities to cope in times of emergency. We provide community groups with advice on how to create a community plan that works alongside the emergency services and responding agencies. We also hold events to bring community groups together to discuss their plans and share knowledge and experience.

If you are interested in setting up a community group, or already have a group and would like to know more, please contact us so we can update you on important news and events. We can also answer any questions you might have, or meet to discuss potential or existing plans.

Caroline Yormesor from Applied Resilience is the Community Resilience Lead for Runnymede Borough Council:

Register to volunteer during an emergency

It can be difficult to involve new volunteers in the midst of an emergency, but you can register your interest before an emergency arises, via Voluntary Support North Surrey.

Voluntary Support North Surrey will connect you with groups/agencies in your area who provide emergency assistance. You will be given details of the type of help needed in an incident and any training that will be provided.
