Be Flood Aware
Wetter winters and drier summers mean that you could be more likely to experience flooding in your area.
We’re currently running a flood awareness campaign to help take the hassle out of preparing a plan for when you may be affected by flooding.
The initiative is timely. Not only have recent weeks shown that flooding is a growing problem in the UK, but our own research also revealed that nearly three in four people in Leicestershire do not have a plan in place.
We found that while valuable resources are available, these resources are dispersed and sometimes difficult to find.
To help people get started, we have gathered the information into a step-by-step guide. From community support, which 70% of survey participants were interested in, to making a household plan and signing up to flood alerts, find out what you can do to boost your resilience.

Could nature help us become flood resilient?
Working with nature for communities
Restoring catchments to a more natural state not only benefits rivers, it can also play an important role in delaying and lowering flood peaks. Natural flood management is what we do locally to reduce the impact on communities.
