Cost of Living

Across Daventry, more and more people are feeling the pressure from the increasing cost of living. If you're struggling financially or concerned about the future, getting help early can make a big difference. Lots of support is available from many different organisations to help you manage cost of living pressures.

Warm Spaces

West Northamptonshire Council have opened a network of Warm Spaces across West Northants in partnership with our voluntary and community sectors.

A Warm Space is a non-judgemental space where you are welcome, free of charge, for any reason. Come along if you fancy a chat, or simply find a quiet corner to sit and read a book.

*** Please be cautious of possible scams including fake text messages and emails relating to cost of living and energy. The government is offering help for households but beware of criminals pretending to offer these support schemes. These scam emails and text messages come in many different forms and promise financial gain. They are often official looking and pretend to be from the government or HMRC.
