The Help For Households campaign gives clear information about the exceptional payments, energy support and existing support schemes available, so the public know what is available and where they can find help.
The homepage gov.uk/helpforhouseholds brings together over 40 support schemes that the public may be able to access depending on eligibility. Additionally, a range of online tools will help citizens quickly and efficiently check the support they might be eligible for and how to access it

The annual Northamptonshire Village Awards (formally known as Best Village Awards) are an opportunity for villages and groups to celebrate and share what they like about their village and what makes it a great place to live. The level of award given for the NVAs is based upon how well a community does across a range of criteria covering all aspects of village life from its facilities and amenities, how welcoming it is, local activities, tidiness and presentation to its environment and green credentials, future sustainability and most importantly community spirit! Each entrant is awarded either a Bronze, Silver or Gold level certificate along with a small cash prize, courtesy of CPRE Northamptonshire, who sponsored this year’s event.
