The shop on Forge Corner, Blaby, will start the trial on Saturday September 22 and run for six weeks, opening from 9.30 – 12.30.
Initially it will just be the customer services team on hand to give general advice and take payments, however if there is a demand for other services, such as benefits, this will be looked at.
Residents are urged to let the council know what services they would like provided during the trial, and to either pop in to the shop or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The customer services team will also staff the main phone number, which usually goes to the out of hours number on a Saturday.
Councillor David Clements, Health Improvement and Corporate Services portfolio holder at Blaby District Council, said:
“It is important the services provided by the Joint Service Shop are easily accessible by residents, and by conducting this trial we hope to assess customer need and what demand there is for our services.”
