Face to face advice services are suspended until further notice. This includes all drop in/appointment service, outreach services and face to face help to claim, debt, energy and health advice service.
Face to face resources have been shifted to telephone and digital services operating from all premises in small clusters and where possible from home in order to minimise the risk of infection spreading.
Citizens Advice services will be available to all for whatever they need, but will be focused on those clients requiring advice on welfare benefits, debt and budgeting advice, housing and employment, energy and health. Please check website information before calling where possible to reduce waiting times on the phone and use the Google form on the website.
