Council services over the festive period

As with previous years, the festive break means some changes to the services we provide you. Every effort has been made to ensure that you will still be able to get help and assistance if you need it during this time.

Access Croydon and the council’s contact centre will be closed from Christmas Eve and reopen 29 December. Residents who need support while self-isolating during this period should complete our Covid-19 contact form. The council website has emergency contact details for all our services if you need them during the holiday period.

Croydon’s FJC, helping victims of domestic abuse, will be closed for a few days from Christmas Eve but will reopen from 29 December. The FJC is open from 9am to 4pm, for more details call 020 8688 0100 or visit the website.

The national domestic abuse hotline is available throughout the Christmas period 24 hours a day on 0808 2000 247, but in the event of an emergency always call the police on 999.

Croydon libraries will be closed from 24 December until 3 January. Our digital library will remain open with access to thousands of e-books, e-audio, digital magazines, newspapers and comics, online reference databases and more.
