A range of Council services are going to be available on the doorstep for local residents when the Pop up HUB returns to Holbeck.
Thanks to the support of the local Councillors, from Monday 10 October the Pop up HUB will be available every fortnight on Crosby Road. The HUB is offering support with Council benefits, council tax, issues with private and social housing, social care, anti-social behaviour, as well support with problem debt and budgeting.
Help can also be given if you are looking for work or training such as developing your skills for future jobs, creating a winning CV and covering letter, setting up an email account, completing on-line and paper application forms, interview techniques, confidence building, job matching and careers advice.
The Neighbourhood Policing Team will also be available as well partner organisations who can offer health related advice.
The Leeds HUB works alongside the Leeds Neighbourhood Approach, which seeks to improve housing standards and bringing empty homes back into use across the city.
Councillor Adam Ogilvie (Labour, Beeston & Holbeck) said:
“The Pop up HUB offers Council services in the heart of the community. They really can make a difference, so if you do need to speak to someone from the Council or our partners make sure you come down!”
Councillor Angela Gabriel (Labour, Beeston & Holbeck) said:
“Getting support finding work or developing your skills can help people into employment. It is really wonderful to see people’s confidence grow as they find work. If anyone in Holbeck is looking for work I really do encourage them to take part in this great service.”
Councillor David Congreve (Labour, Beeston & Holbeck) said:
“The beauty of this kind of service is that it brings everything together in one place. Getting a co-ordinated service make a huge difference, whether this is job support alongside help with debts and budgeting or speaking to both the Council and Police to report anti-social behaviour. It’s great this is returning and I look forward to seeing local residents using the HUB.”
