Spotlight on RE:ACT
Written by RE:ACT
RE:ACT Disaster Response is a first or emergency response charity able to provide vital early intervention support to affected UK communities, councils and other resilience actors involved in responding to an emergency event. Our national HQ is at Chilmark near Salisbury in Wiltshire, and our South West Region engages with the 6 LRFs of Devon, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly, Dorset, Wiltshire & Swindon, Avon Area (comprising City of Bristol, North Somerset, Bath & North East Somerset, and South Gloucestershire), Somerset, and Gloucestershire. We have a Regional Leader (South West) and County Leads for each of the above, and a great many volunteers (Responders as we call them) in the South West.
We recently undertook a Rest Centre training exercise in Bath and regularly help doing the real thing across the country.
