Linkage has developed a Business Continuity Policy and Plan to develop the Trust’s resilience to unplanned events and emergencies.
We have identified the main functions which we feel are critical to the delivery of our Education, Care, Employment and support services.
When analysing the potential for unexpected events and crises which could impact on our services, we look at the likelihood and the consequences.
To help us do this, we have adopted a risk alert status across the Trust which is similar to the system currently used by the national Meteorological Office.
This is the fourth and highest level alert which indicates a high-impact Emergency and equates to the need for an immediate tactical and on-going strategic response. Other services, such as Fire and Rescue, Police and Ambulance, may be involved.
