Sefton@Work Christmas & New Year Hours

Along with the majority of Sefton Council services Sefton@Work will close on Friday 21st December 2018 at 4pm for the Christmas period. We will reopen on Wednesday 2nd January 2019 at 9.15am. Please see details below of the Council wide close down.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Sefton Council will provide restricted services throughout the Christmas and New Year holidays.
Significant savings are being generated as most staff are required to take unpaid leave on December 24, 27, 28 and 31. This will contribute towards the £64m savings required to achieve a balanced budget by 2020. Many services will not operate and most Council buildings will be closed. Residents can still access a range of information and transactions via the council website – This includes checking bin collection dates, paying Council Tax and business rates, applying for licences and reporting environmental issues.
