Information and advice service:
We have drop in advice and information sessions where a trained Advice Officer will help you find your way around accessing advice on the internet and completing online forms such as housing applications and benefit claims.
We run 45 minute appointments where you can see an adviser about a more complex issue.
We also have a room available where you are able to access a telephone, and the Information Team are on hand to help you contact organisations like the Pension Services, gas and electricity companies and banks to sort out queries and problems.
If you cannot get into our offices due to health issues, we can offer you a home visit.
To find out more or book an appointment, please come into our iInformation desk which is open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm, or call our advice line (Details below).
