Cooking Good is a community cooking project working with the West Northants Food Alliance and delivering cooking skills support and resources to those delivering food aid and those working with the most vulnerable.
Cooking Good aims to equip those in receipt of food aid with the skills and confidence to cook from scratch, make the best of their food budget and reduce waste, so that they can make the most of the food supplied and, in turn, support their own wellbeing. We do this by offering training, support and various resources to those who supply food and/ or come into contact with these clients.
Free 12 week support for 1 hour per week for elderly people who are beginning to struggle with everyday life.

NHS England and NHS Improvement has launched the next phase of the latest ‘Help Us, Help You’ campaign which focuses on the NHS 111 service as a new way to access A&E.
If you have an urgent but not life-threatening medical need, make sure you contact NHS 111 first rather than going straight to A&E. If you do need urgent care, then NHS 111 can now book you in to be seen quickly and safely in A&E.
As well as this, NHS 111 is also able to direct to or book an appointment at Urgent Treatment Centres, access to Out of Hours GP Services, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics.
Contacting 111 first will also help the NHS to keep you safe by maintaining social distancing and ensure that you receive the right care in the right place, in a more timely and safe way.
If you or your loved one have a life-threatening illness or injury then you should always use 999 and if you do arrive at A&E without contacting NHS 111 you will still receive medical care, with emergency treatments prioritised.
Just think 111 first. When you think you need A&E, contact NHS 111 by phone or online at https://111.nhs.uk/
Further information about NHS 111 First is available at www.northamptonshireccg.nhs.uk
