Flooding is an increasingly serious problem in the UK. In England nearly 1 in every 6 properties is at risk of flooding.
The impact of flooding on individuals, businesses and communities is often devastating, however many people at serious risk of being affected by flooding are not aware of the extent of that risk.
Many others are not aware of what they can do to reduce the effects of flooding, if it does occur.
It is therefore very important to increase public awareness of the risk of flooding and make sure people have the information they need to reduce the impact of flooding on themselves, their family, their home and their community.
This project was designed to work with members of the public and through a process of dialogue, create new and practical tools to help specialist agencies communicate flood risk, and what people should do in the event of flooding, as effectively as possible.
