The only certainty is uncertainty, so we are working with experts, community leaders and business to build truly resilient communities that can thrive no matter what.
Community Resilience is defined as "the coming together of individuals and organisations before, during and after major shocks or stresses to ensure a sustainable business community for the future". This capability required both a proactive and a reactive approach, as well as a strong cultural component. Taken together, they enable a business district to survive and thrive for the long term. Community resilience rises above the nature of the shock or stress or the type of business - it is transformative in general.
Being resilient helps you better deal with any day-to-day challenges that strike you. This can mean being ready when a major disruption hits, like a cyber-attack, or simply arranging with neighbours to have your spare keys in case you forget yours at home.
A community is any group of organisations or people who are linked together and have something in common. Commonly we think of them as geographic but the only thing that matters is that they all share the same interests or concerns.
If you are already part of a community using ARC speak to your community leader. In the event that you aren't sure what community you are a part of, or don't think you are part of a community, please contact us using the contact page.
If you think that you have content that would be useful for people to read then drop us a line using the contact page and we'll be in touch to discuss.
ARC has a built-in tool that will help you assess your resilience and rate you against each resilient behaviour category.
