CENTRES which offer help from a range of organisations are to reopen in Flintshire, it has been confirmed.

Flintshire Council has announce that Flintshire Connects Centres will reopen on a phased basis from July 13.

The centres bring together Flintshire Council, North Wales Police, Job Centre Plus and other partner organisations to deliver services to the public and vulnerable individuals in the community who find it difficult to access help online or by phone.

Connah’s Quay and Mold's centres will open on July 13, Flint's centre will open on July 20 and Buckley and Holywell's centres will open on July 27.

A council spokesman said: "Things will look different when people visit us in the future and there may be some disruption to service as we have introduced measures to ensure our visitors and employees remain safe at all times.

"A queuing system will be in place to manage the number of people permitted in each Centre at one time, a one-way system will be in operation at some Centres, and hand sanitising is required on arrival at all centres.

"There will be no access to public computers in our initial phase of reopening because, in addition to physical distancing, we need to limit the number of touch points across all Centres.

"It is also important that people do not gather at Centres unnecessarily and for long periods of time.

"We anticipate Centres will be busy and we encourage people to continue to access services online (www.flintshire.gov.uk) and by telephone (01352 752121) wherever possible leaving Centres to prioritise our most vulnerable customers.

"These measures have been introduced to keep everyone safe and we ask our communities to help by following the advice and guidance at centres."
