Event description
This fourth webinar in the East Midlands Series supports Flood Warden and Community Emergency Volunteer groups to promote their activities.

About this Event

Promoting the activities and support offered by a Flood Warden or CEV group can have a number of benefits for its development, including recruiting new volunteers, identifying wider funding opportunities and creating local partnerships. However, as volunteer groups with limited resources, finding time to dedicate to this can be challenging. This session provides guidance on how to kick-start marketing and communications efforts, with tips to building the group’s profile within the wider community. The webinar will be supported by the Environment Agency’s East Midlands Flood Resilience Team.

Join this session to build your knowledge on a range of key topics, including:

• Defining the group’s identity and developing key marketing messages

• Using social media to promote the group’s activities, with tips on using Twitter and Facebook

• Messaging and communications before, during and after an incident

• Designing a logo and promotional materials

Who is this for?

This webinar is aimed at Flood Warden and Community Emergency Volunteer groups based in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and other counties within the East Midlands but is also open to:

Community organisations, Town and Parish Councils and those working in community resilience within the area.

This webinar has been part of a series, with the final session on Community Fundraising taking place on March 24th.
