Wales Resilience Partnership Team

Wales Resilience Partnership Team

The role of the Wales Resilience Partnership Team (WRPT).
  • To act as a mechanism for assessing the implications for Wales of the resilience work produced through the UK Capabilities Programme
  • To recommend to the Wales Resilience Forum (WRF) appropriate actions to be taken in Wales on UK Resilience initiatives in the light of the assessments made
  • To address priorities on a pan-Wales level, based on those areas of work identified as of the highest concerns in which pan-Wales planning would add value
  • To establish, where appropriate, multi-agency Capability Sub-Groups with a specific remit (for example, CBRN)
  • To establish and maintain pan-Wales response structures through the Pan-Wales Response Plan and to ensure effective and appropriate arrangements are in place for responding to the full range of emergency scenarios
  • To produce a core framework for capability development in Wales and to advise the WRF on progress
  • To advise on arrangements, where appropriate, for dealing with ‘mass impact’ challenges (i.e. incidents with the potential to overwhelm the capacity of responders in a single Local Resilience Forum area to respond effectively) and, with approval from the WRF, to issue guidance to planners
  • To facilitate the Wales Resilience Partnership Forum to reinforce communication and information sharing networks with local responders
  • To horizon scan and risk assess possible threats to Wales and advise the WRF.
