The National Flood Forum, a national charity that began in 2002, supports and represents people and communities at risk of flooding. They have helped to set up, and support, around 160 community flood action groups. Flood action groups help to bring communities together, support people in preparing for future flooding and provide a point of contact for the variety of agencies that work on flood risk. This case study focuses on how one of these groups, Flood Action 4 Buckingham (FA4B) was established and how they support the local community.
