Scottish Government announces Resilience Week

The Scottish Government has announced details of its Resilience Week, 7 – 11 November, which aims to ensure individuals, families, communities and businesses are better prepared for events which can seriously disrupt daily life. These wide-ranging threats include severe weather, cyber-crime, disruption to business, and ill-health/accidents.

Building resilience involves developing the ability to detect, prevent, and when necessary, handle and recover from emergencies and other disruptive events that might affect Scotland’s communities.

The campaign is seeking business input and invites businesses to share best practice in resilience so others can be inspired and benefit. This can include company blogs, information on what companies are doing to be more resilient, details of major projects or simply advice companies believe to be worth sharing.

Additionally, Ready Scotland is looking for companies to write a resilience-linked blog that can be published on readyscotland.org or potentially used as part of the government’s local press activity.

For a chance to showcase what your company is involved in around resilience - and be a part of this coordinated press activity - please e-mail Jule Watt or call 0131 240 6420 as soon as possible for the best chance of being included.

The Ready Scotland team will be working to draw together all the content created around Resilience Week and sharing across its social media channels.
