Community Crisis Recovery Training

Created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but applicable to all civil emergencies, this training module offers key information and practical guidance on moving through crisis to a ‘new normal’ and navigating the steps in between. It explores the roles of Community Emergency Volunteers, Town and Parish Councils and voluntary organisations in the rebuilding process. Tips are included on ways to foster collaborative working to reduce the recovery timeline, effectively connect and communicate as a community, and plan for the future.
