Met Office online community resilience course prospectus 2024

Mett Office CR training prospectus cover July to Dec 24.png

Community responders and the voluntary sector play a crucial role in the resilience of the UK. Our training prospectus is aimed at those who work or volunteer in the local community to make them more resilient to severe weather events.

The Met Office have a key role under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 to provide information to Category 1 and 2 responders but also to warn and inform the public around severe weather. The courses contained in the prospectus will provide an opportunity for community responders and the voluntary sector who work closely with local responders to increase their knowledge and find sources of information to assist them as they respond to severe weather.

Courses include a 2-hour course about Climate Change and the community aimed at community responders and the voluntary sector on what the current state of the climate is within the UK and around the globe plus a look at what the future climate may hold. This will lead to an increased knowledge around the issues and potential impacts we may face in the future and where further information can be found to assist with planning and preparation.​
