GGF forms new panel to advise government on emergency situations

  • 7 Jul 2017

The GGF has formed a new Government Advisory Panel that will be part of the GGF’s Political Strategy Committee.

The new panel has been formed following the Grenfell Fire tragedy and several terror attacks in London and Manchester, allowing the GGF to co-ordinate its internal resource and Members’ opinions to enable swifter and more focused responses to emergency situations. 

Phil Pluck, GGF Chief Executive, explains: “The new Government Advisory Panel will help the GGF pull together its internal resources and Member’ expertise more effectively and efficiently.”

The panel plans to provide the Federation with a fluid group of advisers made up from nominated experts from the GGF’s specialist groups. The GGF is now in contact with all the Chairs of its Specialist Groups within the GGF Membership and will ask each Group to nominate two experts to represent their group.
