Sandwell’s Local offices are now closed to the public in line with government advice on dealing with the current COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

We need people who have access to the internet to request services online. This will help free up our phone lines for people who don't have access to the internet who are often the most vulnerable.

Wherever possible, please set up a MySandwell account to access council services, pay bills and report issues.

You can also report emergency repairs online.

There's also information available for anyone who is struggling financially.

Although our Local offices are currently closed, our staff are still working and supporting residents. You can email your Local for non-urgent matters:
