What steps his Department is taking to support Local Resilience Forums in managing local responses to the covid-19 outbreak.
28 April 2020
All Local Resilience Forums (LRFs) have a dedicated Government Liaison Officer from MHCLG, who provides a direct line of contact into central government. LRFs are further supported by senior MHCLG leaders and experts in local engagement and response. Ministers talk to LRF leads regularly to discuss issues and how we can better support them.
MHCLG have also supported the embedding of four highly experienced military planners into each LRF, who are providing on-the-ground support. I would like to take this opportunity to particularly thank the North Wales Local Resilience Forum, and, as I know my Honourable Friend is a medical practitioner himself, the whole NHS for their tireless and determined work at this most difficult time.
