The EPC is the UK’s national centre for resilience learning and development services; we develop people, teams and organisations through training, exercising and consultancy. We help customers protect their businesses and their reputation both in the UK and around the world.

We have been sharing our experiences, expertise and knowledge for almost 80 years and every year over 7,000 people trust us to help them prepare for a wide range of disruptive events.

We help organisations and individuals assess the risk of emergencies through planning to deal with them, developing the capability to deal with them effectively, responding to them and managing the recovery phase.

The EPC is owned by the UK Government and, as part of the Cabinet Office’s Civil Contingencies Secretariat, our work is endorsed by the UK’s authority on resilience.
