Cambridgeshire County Council – Community Resilience
Become a member of March Community Flood Group
Are you interested in learning more about flood and water management? Would you like to get relevant training and work closely with other organisations to help raise awareness about flood risk in your community? Does helping to write a flood plan sound intriguing to you?
If so, then you may be interested in becoming a member of a Community Flood Group in March. A Community Flood Group is a group of local volunteers who will receive training that they can use to help their communities become more resilient. The group will focus on minimising the effects of flooding within their communities by planning ahead and sharing information. The group will liaise with other authorities (e.g. Councils, Environment Agency, water companies) to highlight and resolve issues. It is intended that the volunteers will be formally recognised for their work in representing the community. The County Council is, for example, looking to trial a time credits scheme. There are many examples of community flood groups across the country and a few are provided on the National Flood Forum website (nationalfloodforum.org.uk).
The Cambridgeshire County Council Flood and Water Team are working with the Environment Agency to help form Community Flood Groups in March and across the County. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity then please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Adults and Older People Help to stay independent, safe and well:
Many of us don’t think about care and support until we or someone we know need it, then find we are unsure where to find information and how to access the support we need. A new online resource is providing information about care and support and wellbeing, including information about continuing to live independently and safely at home, make life easier, get support after a stay in hospital, or find out about care home and housing options and paying for care and support. You can find out more by visiting www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/careandsupport
If you do not have access to the Internet, can’t find what you need online, or want more information, you can phone 0345 045 5202 or visit any Cambridgeshire Library (also known as community hubs).
