Community Response to Flooding and Volunteer Support

Rhondda Cynon Taf Council is working in partnership with Interlink, Community Groups and our Communities to coordinate a community response to flooding and ensure we get the right help to the right locations as soon as we can.

The unprecedented weather events of this week have been devastating to communities across Rhondda Cynon Taf, which have responded with real community spirit and enormous resilience.

Our Communities are telling us that they need…


To be in our designated collection points sort items – we will be publishing these soon.

To help with the manual clean-up operation – we need help from individuals and organisations.

To help individuals manage the impact on their homes – To help people move and sort out their homes.

Skilled trade – To re-instate the infrastructures and secure homes.

Drivers – To make sure the effort required to distribute items is available, reaches the communities most in need, and to respond to individual need. Specialist vehicles would also assist.

Mini-bus drivers – to help people get to Wi-Fi and sources of help and support – such as Foodbanks and Libraries.
