Northumbrian Water is encouraging Sunderland residents to get involved in a community-led initiative aimed at reducing the risk of flooding.
The second phase of a community-led initiative to reduce the risk of flooding in Northumberland is set to commence.
More than £300,000 of support from Northumbrian Water has been given to organisations across the North East to support community, environmental and heritage projects.
South Tyneside residents are being invited to share information that could help shape a potential future flood risk reduction scheme.
The second phase of a £6 million scheme to reduce flood risk in North Tyneside is to begin in April 2017.
