Community Risk Register

The National Risk Register provides an updated government assessment of the likelihood and potential impact of a range of different malicious and non-malicious national security risks (including natural hazards, industrial accidents, malicious attacks, and others) that may directly affect the UK and its interests over the next two years.

In addition to providing information on how the UK Government and local responders manage these emergencies, the National Risk Register also signposts advice and guidance on what members of the public can do to prepare for these events. Further information can be found via the links included in the document - National Risk Register,

As well as using the National Risk Register, the public can also find information about risks to their local area through their Community Risk Register.

What is a Community Risk Register?

The Gwent LRF Community Risk Register is the result of a process carried out by the Gwent LRF Risk Assessment Working Group to assess the likelihood and impacts of a range of hazards affecting the Gwent area.  

In addition to assessing hazards, the Gwent LRF also assess the consequences of possible threats caused by malicious incidents. However, the sensitivity of the information supporting these assessments means that specific details will not be made available in the public domain.

How is the Gwent Community Risk Register Created?

Guided by the National Risk Assessment, which is the UK government’s classified assessment of risks that could happen in the UK, the Risk Assessment Working Group assess the national risks in a local context by looking at what affect the risk has on factors such as the local infrastructure, economy, geography and demographics.

The results of these risk assessments are used to inform our level of preparedness for responding to the consequences of the identified hazards and threats, and assist the LRF in prioritising ways of reducing the risks where possible.  This can include the production of effective multi-agency plans and procedures, and joint agency training and exercising.

The current Gwent Local Resilience Forum Community Risk Register is available for download.
