What they say
"I was pleased to receive a copy of the Urban Forum Guide to Community Resilience. The book has been on my desk ever since. It chimes perfectly with the Localism agenda, is accessible, easy to read and inspires you to action. I would recommend it to any community group or local council looking to get a real handle on what current Policy actually translates to in terms of potential real action to improve and support our communities."
Steven Lugg, Hamphire Association of Local Councils
