“We are delighted to be moving into to Leicester City Council’s Customer Service Centre, a fully accessible, central building that will make it easier for our clients to get advice.
“Sharing office space with the City Council is very positive as clients will benefit from our closer proximity to the other services they use.
“I would like to thank Leicester City Council for agreeing and recognising the benefits of this move.
“I look forward to this exciting new chapter and forging closer working relationships with our Council colleagues for the benefit of our clients.”
City Mayor Peter Soulsby added:
“We recently bought the York House premises for our customer service centre, securing its long-term future as a council base.
“This also gives us the option to invest in services in the building, and bringing in partners, like Citizen’s Advice, is an ideal way to do that.
“It makes perfect sense for these services to be located in the same place and I am very pleased that we were able to help out by providing this location.”
