Membership of the Business Management Group is comprised of suitably empowered managers / officers. Nominated deputies are suitably empowered and of sufficient seniority to act on the organisations behalf.

LRF Sub-Groups

The main business of the LRF is delivered through its sub-groups which form part of the monthly 'Working on Weekdays' (WOW) process. This process is the real 'heartbeat' of the LRF, and brings together senior practitioners from key partner agencies on a monthly basis to ensure that the LRF is dynamic, responsive and delivers on the agreed work plan. The main sub-groups meet quarterly within the WOW process.

All sub-groups are established by the Business Management Group and their chairs agreed. All chairs are responsible for providing the secretariat for their own sub-group. The sub-group chair is responsible for ensuring the group complies with the agreed conduct and governance arrangements of the main LRF.

The chairs of sub-groups are responsible for the delivery / outputs from sub-groups and report back on their activities to the Business Management Group. The Business Management Group provides direction to each sub-group as appropriate.

Each sub-group is responsible for drawing up and maintaining their own terms of reference, remit and timescales for the delivery of agreed work contained within the work plan, and with the agreement of the Business Management Group.

The resilience world is an ever changing landscape with new work and initiatives emerging all the time. This work has to be prioritised and it is often necessary to establish a bespoke task and finish group to consider individual pieces of work. These groups are time limited and disband after a piece of work is delivered.

The LRF Manager is a full time member of staff who has responsibility for coordinating activities across all partner agencies.
