The role of Local Resilience Forums

This document provides a list of issues and outcomes that Local Resilience Forums (LRFs) can use for self assessment, peer review and improvement.



This is the first revision since initial publication. The document is sourced from the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, its regulations and the Emergency Preparedness statutory guidance document.

It’s intended to be used as a single reference document that will support Local Resilience Forums (LRFs) by providing a checklist of issues and outcomes that will assist in self assessment, peer review and improvement.

It has been produced with stakeholders and reflects the good work that is already taking place across the UK. Its aim is to promote consistently high standards in the civil contingencies community and explain how existing expectations and processes complement and integrate with each other. The document relates to current structures and will be updated as and when changes occur.

This guidance is designed to complement the Expectations and Indicators of Good Practice Set for Category 1 and 2 Responders.
