The role of Local Resilience Forums (LRFs) in recovery is set out in “The Role of Local Resilience Forums: A Reference Document”

It states that “recovery management is best approached from the perspective of community development and is most effective when conducted at a local level, with the active participation of the community and a strong reliance on local capacities and expertise. Recovery is not just a matter for the statutory agencies – the private sector, the voluntary sector and the wider community will play a crucial role.”

MHCLG continues to engage frequently with all LRFs to discuss the Covid-19 response and will work with them as they develop and implement their post-Covid-19 recovery strategies.
