About the Project:
Civil Contingencies - The team will support SBC and Responders in major incidents or natural hazards and train volunteer groups in SCRAM Disaster Response exercises. 
Community Resilience - The team will work to help streamline and coordinate local planning and delivery of infrastructure activities to support SBC Resilient Communities with Faith Communities/Voluntary groups (e.g. wellbeing support for vulnerable groups) .
Training - The team will enact the Faith Emergency Response Plan by training online and onsite/desk top exercises in preparing for major incidents. WPCS would utilise its training programme (online or onsite) in adding learning and pastoral skills to assist professionals and voluntary organisations (e.g. Border Search and Rescue Unit) dealing with bereavement, trauma support and individual and corporate resilience. 
Multi-agency Wellbeing Support - With the support of other wellbeing partners, Chaplains will provide wellbeing support to specific working groups where trauma support, bereavement, resilience and suicide awareness are required by way of shared events and training (Chaplains currently provide this to Borders fire stations).  Referrals and signposting to external organisations for specialist support are understood.
