Find out how to make payments online, over the phone or by using PayPoint.  If you would like to speak to a supervisor, please ask a member of staff while you are in the centre.

Please check our opening times carefully as some Customer Service Centres do not open Monday to Friday.  On weekdays when the CSC is closed, customers can still make enquiries with YHN staff about YHN issues. 

All our centres aim to be easily accessible to customers, providing the following facilities:

  • Facilities for people with impaired hearing.
  • Audio and visual queueing systems.
  • PCs for customer use with free internet access.
  • Private interview rooms.
  • Comfortable waiting areas.
  • Access to language interpretation services to enable council business.
  • Children's play equipment.
  • Freephones to other council departments and YHN Offices.

At Gosforth and Kenton Libraries there is a Customer Information Zone, where customers can access council services over the web or via the telephone. Members of staff are on hand to support customers making online council transactions.

We regularly ask you for feedback on the services we provide and have made some changes based on your suggestions.
