Holbeck Councillors welcome local Council hub

Councillors for Beeston and Holbeck have welcomed the addition of a new mobile hub for the area on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The mobile community hub will be able to deal with the same enquiries as a regular council hub building and will be parked in front of St Matthew’s Community Centre on Tuesdays from 10am-3:30pm and Thursdays from 9am-3:30pm. On Thursday morning, a library story bus aimed at children aged five and younger will be at the building too.

The customer services team staffing the mobile hub will be available to help people into work by preparing CVs, help applying for jobs and mock interviews. They have access to the latest Council job vacancies and there will be computers for residents to use. Residents needing more privacy or intense support will be able to access St Matthew’s Community Centre thanks to Holbeck Together.

Councillors Andrew Scopes, Gohar Almass and Angela Gabriel said:

“We’re glad to see Leeds City Council and Holbeck Together working to make sure that our residents receive the same amenities as those available elsewhere in Leeds.

“It’s great that residents in Holbeck will now be able to access these handy council services closer to their doorsteps, as well as the library story bus which we’re sure will prove to be popular with local kids.”
