A week of action against knives

This week we are running a knife crime activity week in your area as part of Operation Sceptre – a national week of action. We will be involving the community in our work where we can.

We will also be taking the opportunity to talk to children in school about knives and the dangers of knife carrying. If you want to take this week as an opportunity to talk to your child about knife crime we have help and advice on how to have that chat, including what to say on our website.

Sorted YOUR £150 yet?

The government announced on 3rd February 2022 measures to help protect millions of households from rising energy costs in 2022 to 2023.

These measures include a one-off £150 non-repayable rebate for households in England in council tax bands A to D, known as the Council Tax Rebate. This is a payment of £150 per household and not a reduction off your bill. Funding has also been provided for councils to operate a Discretionary Scheme to support households that do not qualify for the Council Tax Rebate.

YOUR Council Tax Rebate is £150 in YOUR pocket – and loved ones’. If you – or they – don’t pay Council Tax by direct debit, you’ll need to apply for YOUR £150 NOW.
