How to get involved

Building resilience to Natural hazards in Scotland has to be a collaborative effort. The only way we will progress sustainably is by working together. We as the National Centre for Resilience are a collaborative model with our steering group representing cross-sector organisations including the Met Office, Natural Hazards Partnership, Regional Resilience Partnerships, Scottish Government and Academia. 

There are many ways you can get involved and work with us to create a more resilient future for Scotland. If you would like to discuss an idea or need further information on deadlines and scope for any of the methods listed below, please contact us at

Our blog is open to everybody. Our blog pieces tend to have two types of focus - either a discussion piece around resilience - particularly, but not exclusively, resilience to natural hazards.
