Details

This project describes the findings of work to develop a consistent approach to evaluating the benefits of working with volunteers as part of flood and coastal risk management (FCRM) activities in England.

Volunteers add value to flood risk management activities by building community resilience and preparedness that is helping to make communities more self-reliant. Use of volunteers brings benefits to the Environment Agency, its partner organisations, local communities and the volunteers themselves.

This research is helping the Environment Agency and it’s partners to understand how it can best work with volunteers.
