Did you know that young people are most at risk in a flood? Research by the Environment Agency found that 18-34 year olds are least likely to know if the area they live is at risk of flooding and of the dangers of flooding.
Oxford has one of the youngest populations of any UK city, but is also one of the most vulnerable cities to flooding. Mental health impacts of flooding can last for two years or more.
