Good news for Southport as One Stop Shop reopens – people can now arrange appointments at both Bootle and Southport centres

Sefton Council is reminding residents that Southport One Stop Shop (now located within The Atkinson) reopened on Monday, 12th April 2021.

This means that both One Stop Shops in Sefton are now open.

Bootle opening hours are 10am – 4pm, Monday to Friday, while at Southport, opening hours are 11am – 4pm, Monday to Friday.

Customers are not able to simply drop in at the moment, however pre-arranged 30-minute appointments are available and can be booked by calling the Council’s Contact Centre 0345 140 0845.

More info on contacting the Council can be found here.  

Visitors are asked to be on time, any late arrivals may risk losing their appointment slot, and with no waiting area available, visitors are asked not to arrive too early and to attend alone where possible.

Public toilets will not be available at Bootle One Stop Shop and are limited at The Atkinson, Southport.

Visitors will be required to wear a face covering and ensure social distancing; hand sanitiser stations will be provided, and anyone with any Covid-19 symptoms is asked not to enter the building – they should get a test at one of Sefton’s test centres for those with symptoms.

Covid-19 testing info can be found here.

The Council appreciates that some of these changes may cause frustration for some customers but ask that One Stop Shop staff and The Atkinson staff are treated with respect. Please be patient, be kind.
