Find out about the Voluntary and Community Sector Emergencies Partnership.
The Voluntary and Community Sector Emergencies Partnership is made up of a range of organisations within the sector.
It aims to improve coordination at national and local levels before, during and after emergencies – while empowering communities to help shape the process.
Bringing together local, national and global expertise from the sector, it aims to help people prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies, so that they can rebuild their lives.
It also has an influencing role, and gives a voice to those at risk of or affected by disasters and emergencies in the UK, so that they are at the heart of any response.
Emergencies support line
Members of the Voluntary and Community Sector Emergencies Partnership have worked with partners to create one single point of contact for the public when there is a serious incident or emergency.
This number will be free to call and promoted as soon as an emergency is declared. This will ensure that anyone needing practical or emotional support receives the help they need.
Those answering calls will deal directly with people’s needs or swiftly signpost them to where to go for the support they need.
