Council tax and business rates outstanding balance issues

We are currently experiencing a technical issue affecting the outstanding balance shown for Council Tax and NNDR accounts online. We apologise for the inconvenience and are working to fix this issue as soon as possible.

Food access


We are committed to increasing access to good food in our communities. 

We know there are many reasons why families and individuals may not have enough food in their cupboards.  As such we are also working to increase the financial security for all our residents.

We are supporting schools, faith organisations, community organisations and charities to increase the scale of food projects across Preston.

Holiday Hunger

Holiday Hunger is a term used to describe a shortage of nutritious food for families and children during school holidays, which can put increased pressure on family budgets. 

Who does it affect?

It can affect children who receive free school meals but also those families on low or insecure incomes.

How we can help

We are working with schools, faith and community organisations to deliver Holiday Markets for families over the school holidays. 

Contact us to find out where you can find your nearest holiday market:

How you can help

We are always looking for new schools, organisations, charities, businesses and individuals to get involved to help us ensure local people do not go hungry. 

If you have a project idea, want to volunteer or make a donation (of goods or services), please contact us:
