Cumbria Action for Sustainability, CVS and ACTCumbria have recently been working together with some funding from the national lottery to deliver a range of support services for residents and communities across Cumbria. In particular we are now able to offer free advice to small businesses on preparing for extreme weather events, such as flooding, and making their businesses more resilient.
As a first step we have a short leaflet with some key info and checklists, which is attached. If you feel this would be of interest to your members please could you share it with them in your mailshots or on your website? We also have hard copies available, if you would like any just ask.
Shortly we will also be able to provide a DIY Resilience Plan for small businesses to tailor to their situation, and hopefully also free 1-2-1 mentoring from one of our advisors if they would like assistance completing it.
I’ll be in touch again later this autumn with information on that, but if anybody would like to register an interest now please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
