‘ResilienTogether’ Flood & Coastal Resilience Innovation Programme
“With support from JBA Consulting, ResilienTogether is creating a ‘Smart’ catchment, through innovative technologies and techniques, to reduce flood risk to people and places, enhance the water environment in the Pix Brook catchment and improve community resilience in the face of climate change. The project is achieving this through a close-knit partnership that collaborate to deliver six inter-related work packages. I am a Project Support Officer for ResilienTogether. This role includes working with the clients, project partners and stakeholders, organising and attending meetings and ensuring actions are met. I also provide technical support managing, analysing and mapping data and producing outputs for the wider project and individual work packages.”

Felindre Property Flood Resilience
“The Felindre Property Flood Resilience (PFR) project involved undertaking PFR surveys of properties at flood risk and those that have previously experienced flooding. The surveys involved an external property survey, engaging with residents about flood history and identifying ingress points and sources of flooding. In my role as assistant surveyor, I accompanied colleagues to site to take measurements, write notes and take photographs. I was also involved in writing up the information into reports, creating figures and summarising the resilience measures and options suitable for the property, occupants and the nature of flood risk.”
