• Warm Homes Fund

    If you are struggling to pay your energy bills and your home is hard to keep warm in winter, you may be eligible to receive help through Norfolk’s Warm Homes Fund Partnership.

    The partnership was created following Broadland District Council’s successful bid for £3.1m in funding from the National Grid’s Warm Homes Fund. The project aims to help more than 1,000 people, including homeowners and renters.

    This money will be used to provide insulation and first-time central heating such as renewable heating, mains gas, oil, or LPG. The aim is to increase comfort in fuel-poor households that do not have any central heating, as well as to provide energy advice and support.

    You may be able to get help from the Warm Homes Fund if you have underlying health issues, are caring for someone vulnerable and are worried about your home being cold or damp. To find out if you, a relative or friend are eligible for support under the scheme, please contact the Broadland District Council Energy Team:

    He said: “We would urge anyone living in these areas to be vigilant and take the necessary security measures such as ensuring doors and windows are locked. Residents can also help us by notifying police about any suspicious activity or behaviour they may witness. You know your communities better than anyone else so will be best placed to notice is something or someone is out of place.”

  • Transforming our Children’s Centres Consultation

    Norfolk County Council have been working on the re-design of a proposed new service for children’s centres which reflects national and local changes as to how families are supported and considers the needs of parents with children aged 0-5 years across Norfolk.

    The proposed new service aims to:

    1.Bring the services out of the buildings and into the community, to the children and families who need it the most.
    2.Help communities and parents offer local activities and groups.
    3.Make it easier for families to access the information and advice they need, through providing better joined up online and digital services.
    4.Change how we work to make sure we deliver in the best way for today’s families.

    They are  consulting on this proposed new model and want to direct you to the webpage www.norfolk.gov.uk/childrenscentres where the consultation proposals are published and open for consideration and your responses.  The consultation is open until 12 November and we look forward to receiving your feedback.
