The Resilience Framework is based on three core principals; a developed and shared understanding of the risks we face, a greater emphasis on preparation and prevention and ensuring resilience is a 'whole of society' endeavour.
What is The UK Government Resilience Framework?
The Resilience Framework articulates the government’s plan to strengthen the systems and capabilities that underpin the UK’s resilience to all civil contingency risks, with priorities in the following areas:
- Greater transparency on the risks we face so that businesses, charities, Individuals and all levels of government can prepare
- Protecting the most vulnerable in our communities and helping responders to target support effectively before, during and after emergencies
- Strengthening accountability on resilience both within government and externally, which includes an annual statement to Parliament on civil contingency risk and resilience
- Ensuring Local Resilience Forums have the resources, capacity, information and capability needed to plan for and respond to the risks we face
- Incentivising and supporting businesses, including operators of Critical National Infrastructure, to strengthen their resilience to real world risks
