Our board partners support the work we do helping people to volunteer in their local area and helping communities prepare for anything from disaster relief to civil emergencies such as the recent pandemic. This involves offering specialised advice and meeting with us each quarter to discuss our work and the direction of Communities Prepared. See below for more information on each of our partners including links to their websites.
