Community Resilience Fund Round 2 Launch
We have great news! Volunteer Centre Hackney has been awarded a grant under round two of the Mayor of London’s Community Resilience Fund. The Community Resilience Fund is part of ongoing work to ensure London remains resilient and prepared for future challenges.
The funding supports community organisations to work together with their local authority emergency planning teams to best prepare for emergencies in their London boroughs. We will be working with London Borough of Hackney.
Our project will focus on increasing engagement, trust and understanding between the voluntary sector and London Borough of Hackney Emergency Planning Team’s. We’ll be working to gather and share insight about how Hackney’s community and voluntary sector comes together to respond to emergencies and ongoing community issues; helping Hackney to be better prepared to face challenges including climate change, the ongoing cost of living crisis and continued COVID recovery.
We’ll be joining a network of 22 community organisations partnering with their respective emergency planning teams to delivery emergency preparedness strategies as unique and diverse as the needs of each of the participating London boroughs.
