BERG (Business Emergency Resilience Group) and news of its good work is spreading fast, with over 1000 people in Cumbria spoken to and many flood grant applications currently underway.
The scheme is proving very successful, reaching wider communities requiring support, with the Adler & Allan team now delivering grants directly to those in need.
BERG static units have been open for business in Kendal, Lancaster and Cockermouth since earlier this year. The addition of our mobile unit, the BERG bus has proven invaluable in supporting local communities in recovering from the floods, while also offering advice on flood grant applications. The BERG bus has a regular timetable of visits to the outer communities across Cumbria, helping those who may not otherwise be able to meet us in towns.
