[We] are currently investigating flood related issues, and we need volunteers to participate in focus group sessions.  By taking part, you could help shape future government policy, and you will also receive a £15 high street voucher.


A significant number of residential properties are currently at risk from flooding. Climate change and increasing urbanisation are expected to increase flood risk in the future. As a result there is a growing need to better protect properties.
An ongoing research study is investigating public attitudes towards flooding and flood protection. The focus group sessions will discuss flood impacts, flood-related insurance problems and property-level flood protection.
Findings from the project are expected to help inform government policy on flood related issues and the funding of property-level flood protection measures.
