STOP PRESS –
IF YOU HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY FLOODING OR YOU ARE AT RISK OF FLOODING YOU HAVE COME THROUGH TO THE RIGHT WEB SITE
OUR DEDICATED TEAM ARE HERE TO HELP SUPPORT AND ADVISE YOU – WHAT EVER YOUR QUERY OR PROBLEM
Help, advice and information if you’re flooded or at flood risk.
Flood advice, information, awareness, education and training to all parts of the private, voluntary and statutory sectors to help reduce the risk of flooding and particularly to support the recovery process following a flood incident.
Our aim is to establish a network, throughout Scotland, of community flood resilient groups to share information, experience and best practice.
Flooding of communities has potentially devastating implications for people and their property. Such flooding can start from various sources (e.g. rivers, the sea, surface water and the sewerage system) but the negative impacts are the same.
Climate change is predicted to increase the risk of such flooding over the coming decades: it is therefore imperative that the resilience of communities at flood risk is enhanced – through the raising of awareness, avoiding the risk of flooding in the first instance, alleviating flood risk through physical intervention (natural or engineered defences) and, importantly, having the capacity in place to assist those communities who suffer flooding.
