Community Risk Management Plan

Our Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP) identifies and assesses all foreseeable risks which our communities may face.

Our Community Risk Management Plan explained

We work hard to identify and assess all foreseeable risks which our communities might face – from house fires and road traffic collisions, through to flooding and terrorism.

We use this information to shape our priorities and how we use the resources we have to reduce risk and vulnerability in our communities.

Our planning looks ahead three years and factors in the views and needs of our communities, our staff and the many other organisations with which we work.

Our Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP), which supports and informs Our Strategy 2024-2027 is a comprehensive framework aimed at making the West Midlands safer, stronger, and healthier. 

The CRMP is the culmination of extensive consultation and feedback from thousands of residents and workers across the region, reflecting our commitment to addressing the wide array of risks our communities face. 

From tackling house fires and road traffic collisions to mitigating the impacts of climate change and terrorism, the CRMP lays the foundation for our future direction. 

Coupled with Our Strategy, setting out 17 strategic goals that span across community risk reduction, people, enabling services, and value, we're set to deliver our services with an eye on efficiency, effectiveness, and inclusivity. 

This strategy is a testament to our dedication to continuous improvement and innovation, guided by a balanced scorecard approach to measure our progress transparently.
