We understand that the cost of living crisis is affecting many of us and we want you to know that you are not alone. You may want help accessing grants and debt advice, support getting all the money you're entitled to, or simply want to know more about the government's recent support fund. We've put together some useful information in the links below to help you:

  • Household Support Fund
    The government recently announced an extension of the scheme supporting vulnerable households, including pensioners and those with children.
  • Benefits
    View available benefits and see if you are eligible.
  • Financial advice
    If you live in the South Northants area you can contact the Money Advice Team.
  • Help for Households Campaign
    Retail deals and discounts to help families over the summer holidays have been launched by the government as part of the Help for Households Campaign. These deals have been signed with various businesses, including Asda, Morrisons, Amazon and Vodafone and are designed to reduce costs at the checkout, help provide entertainment and ensure access to necessary services for families during the summer holidays and beyond. Find out how you can access help with bills, childcare, transport costs and more.
