Let's Talk about floodingTackling flooding together

The National Flood Forum and the Scottish Flood Forum, supported by Flood Re, are looking to further mobilise and engage with communities on the ground in flood affected areas.

A series of conferences and events for communities affected by flooding will allow people to share their experiences, build networks of like-minded people and work together to tackle the issues of living with flood risk.

Through a series of regional events across the UK people will be brought together to talk about flooding.

The hosts

Scottish Flood Forum’s aim is to reduce the impacts of flooding on individuals and communities, through providing immediate support and by establishing a network of community resilience groups in flood risk areas to equip communities to cope with the impacts and threat of flooding.

Purpose of the events

  • Talk to others in similar situations
  • Share experiences
  • Meet and network
  • Seek advice and information
  • Consider how we can work together for change

  • Issues and problems experienced from flooding
  • How is flooding being tackled?
  • Success, issues and concerns
  • Developing a shared flooding agenda
