The launch of the Resilient House on 3 February was a resounding success.  Clare Moriarty, Permanent Secretary, Defra and Emma Howard Boyd, Chair Environment Agency, were joined by project partners and visitors from a wide range of organisations and sectors.

The project aims to show the key role that resilience measures installed in homes can play in preventing and alleviating the devastating effects of flooding on property owners.

Demonstrating a range of practical and innovative measures, the Resilient House shows how to prevent flood water entering a property. It also explores the best ways for reducing the potential for damage and speeding recovery if water does get in, helping people get back on their feet quickly and easily.

Partners include AXA Insurance, British Damage Management Association, Cunningham Lindsey, Defra, Natural Cement Distribution, Property Care Association.
