London is generally a very safe place – however there are a number of hazards and threats that could impact the city from anything to terrorism to flooding. The London Resilience Forum has overall oversight of multi-agency cooperation within the London Resilience Partnership to ensure that if a major emergency does affect the capital, we are ready to respond and work together to help minimise any impacts.
The London Resilience Forum brings together a range of partner including Local Authorities, Transport, and Business partners to develop and refine our capabilities to respond to whatever risks the future may bring. Faiths Forum for London is a member of the London Resilience Forum and leads on faith sector engagement. The following diagram highlights the structure and relationship of the London Resilience Forum.
We are committed to the integration of the faith sector into emergency planning and response. Emergency tabletop exercises are integral part of major emergency management.
