London Resilience Forum
Responsibilities of the forum
Local Resilience Forums were introduced in 2004 in the Civil Contingencies Act to provide the means for those involved in emergency preparedness to collaborate at a local level.
The London Resilience Forum ensures London’s preparedness in the event of emergencies and coordinates the activities of a wide range of organisations to achieve this. It also provides a link between emergency prepareness and resilience at the local and national levels.
For more on the role of these forums, and contact details for each, see the guide ‘Local resilience forums: contact details’
How the forum is organised
More than 170 organisations make up the London Resilience Partnership. To make sure the views of all organisations can be effectively represented at the London Resilience Forum, work is conducted by a series of specific groups and sector panels which report into the main forum.
As well as the London Resilience Forum, each local authority area maintains a Borough Resilience Forum. These local arrangements enable local cooperation and information sharing.
