About the SRF

What is the Suffolk Resilience Forum?

The Suffolk Resilience Forum (SRF) is a multi-agency group that provides strategic / tactical and operational guidance and support on the planning for the multi-agency response to a major incident.

The SRF is the principal mechanism for multi-agency cooperation under the Civil Contingencies Act, 2004 and its boundaries are based on local policing boundaries.


  • To promote cooperation between organisations in their preparation for response to a major emergency;
  • To promote joint training and exercising and integrate this as part of the preparations of the individual organisations;
  • To provide a forum for the consideration of emergency response issues where there are implications for more than one agency;
  • To support agreed courses of action where mutual benefit has been identified;
  • To provide an opportunity for the exchange of information; and
  • To risk assess hazards within and to Suffolk.
