Rachel Blackburn, a senior associate and head of the firm's Climate Change and Emissions practice unit, has been invited to join the board of Trustees for the National Flood Forum (NFF).

The NFF is a national, community based, organisation that helps communities and individuals prepare themselves for flooding, and supports them to address the myriad issues they face when it does occur.

The Forum was established in 2002 with start-up funding from the Environment Agency. It seeks to provide a strong and independent voice that represents the interests of people affected by flooding with the authorities responsible for managing it.

This includes working closely together with The Environment Agency, Water Companies, Local Authorities, Government, flood protection companies and the insurance industry, as well as flood groups.

Rachel said: “I’m delighted to have been asked to join the board of Trustees for the NFF. This role will provide the opportunity to work closely with councils and technology providers as well a number of regulatory bodies, and I’m looking forward to building some long-lasting relationships during my tenure.”
