Welcome to Cornwall Community Flood Forum

Cornwall Community Flood Forum (CCFF) is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) open to everyone in Cornwall with an interest in flood risk – its causes, how to prepare and how to recover. The Forum is supported by Cornwall Council, the Environment Agency, South West Water and many other organisations but it was set up, and remains, as a community-led group.

CCFF aims to support communities, homes and businesses to become more resilient to the impacts of flooding. We do this by:

  • Raising awareness about current and future flood risk to communities, businesses and schools.
  • Assisting communities in preparing for flooding and facilitating post flood recovery.
  • Leading community flood warden training for communities at risk in Cornwall.
  • Collaborating with others to form partnerships and share experience and knowledge with others.

Membership of the Forum is free so why not join us?
