Cornwall Community Resilience Network


The Community Toolkit has been produced to support you and your community during the ongoing COVID-19 situation. Please also see the Cornwall Council Coronavirus webpage.

At the very beginning of an emergency, communities may have to cope on their own until help arrives. Community resilience is about communities using local resources and knowledge during an emergency, both before emergency services are on the scene and working alongside them once they arrive. It involves identifying and planning for things that could happen during an emergency so communities can help themselves.

The Government has produced this handy guide which sets out The Context for Community Resilience. 

The Cornwall Community Resilience Network helps communities to be prepared to respond to an emergency, like flooding, heavy snowfall or a major fire. Use the links on this page to find out how to set up a group, write a community emergency plan and learn about how other Cornish communities are becoming better prepared.
