Community Resilience Strategic Action Plan

$Price on Application

Are you currently in the process of mapping out priorities for building resilience in your community over the next 2-5 years?


This is a huge task and can be overwhelming with all the different stakeholder groups and community voices contributing to the discussion.

At corporate2community (C2C) we can support local leaders to create a Community Resilience Strategic Action Plan and help guide your community on the road towards resilience.

We provide an independent review of your community priorities, capabilities and strengths, as well as gaps and opportunities.

The benefit of engaging a third party such as C2C to help create a Community Resilience Strategic Action Plan is that we can manage the varied stakeholders without bias and provide an objective voice to help reach a consensus.  The outcome results in C2C being able to identify responsibilities of each sub-community group to deliver against the plan priorities.

A Community Resilience Strategic Action Plan is one of the solutions available to help communities before, during and after disasters. This program is part of our Help a Local Community package of solutions.

How does it work?

There are 6 steps which can be activated within two months.

1: We host a 1.5-hour online workshop with 2-4 community representatives to map out your community stakeholders, understand existing capabilities and gaps in your community. We will ask you lots of questions about the priorities for your community when it comes to building resilience including the current role of various stakeholder groups within your community so we can identify how resilient your community already is.

2: We then connect via phone with up to 10 local groups representing key stakeholder categories. These 15-minute conversations will enable us to gain a deeper understanding of how they see the future of your community and what they think the community resilience priorities should be.

3: We email a first draft of the Community Resilience Strategic Action Plan to the 2-4 community representatives including community strengths, gaps and opportunities. We ask you to share the first draft with your wider community and invite feedback from all community members via an online survey.

4: We host a second online workshop with the 2-4 community representatives to share the feedback findings from the draft version and present our recommendations of proposed changes for the final version. At this point you will know what the final version will include.

5: We email a second draft version of the Community Resilience Strategic Action Plan to the 2-4 community representatives for final approval. Once approved we send a PDF ready to share with the wider community.

6: We then host a 1.5-hour online conversation with unlimited community representatives to talk through the plan and answer any questions you have. (FREE)
