2022-23 Comms and Engagement Plan

The Flood Hub communication and engagement plan is delivered by the Newground Flood Team.

Background

The Flood Hub website is a joint initiative by Newground, the Environment Agency, United Utilities, and the Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, and Cheshire Strategic Flood Partnerships. It is funded by the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC) and launched on 5th November 2018.

The website is an online platform that provides flood resilience advice and information for householders, businesses and communities across the northwest. Using our online digital capability, we keep users up to date with the latest flooding news, events and resources in order to stay flood aware and increase their own resilience.

The Newground Flood Team write and develop the content for The Flood Hub and worked with website developers to create the website and continue to work with them to further develop it. The Newground Flood Team also manage the day-to-day maintenance of the website and social media accounts, publish regular content updates and deal with enquiries.
