"Our policy on Community Resilience has been influenced by the work you have undertaken in helping us understand the policy from a community perspecive, practical suggestions on where policy gaps were and, importantly, joining up research, practice and policy. Your help in developing and running the Cabinet Office Community Resilience Research Workshop made a real difference, as indeed did the workshop; which helped us broaden the terms of the European Call for Funding to include CR outcomes."

Assistant Director, Civil Contingencies Secretariat (CCS), Cabinet Office




"Dr Hugh Deeming is a very highly valued Fellow of the Emergency Planning College.   He has supported the work of the Emergency and Crisis Management Faculty with first-rate research and reporting, insightful papers and lectures in our seminars and Open Lecture series which have been stimulating and popular with a large and varied audience.  He is an authority on the grass-roots development and enhancement of community resilience and humanitarian assistance in and after emergencies.  He has excellent research skills and a keen understanding of the practical challenges for communities and responders, gained from direct experience and professional field work.  This is a powerful and rare combination of expertise, knowledge and skills.  Hugh is a great asset to the College and the resilience community as a whole."

Mark Leigh, Faculty Director, EPC, Easingwold.




"We (ACTion with Communities in Cumbria) have worked with Hugh over several years on community resilience issues. Hugh has been helpful in assisting us to understand and reflect international policy issues in our work in a practical and accessible style. When working with Hugh in the community we have benefited from his informative and engaging approach and practice, alongside his maintenance of the academic discipline to inform the research he has been carrying out. Cumbrian communities have benefited from inclusion in the research Hugh has conducted and we are pleased to see that he uses evidence from Cumbria in his work."
