Citizens Advice continues to provide support to people in Dorset who need advice in these difficult times. Free, independent and confidential advice and information whatever your question.
We offer a full range of advice including help with:
• Benefits entitlement and claims
• Debt management and budgeting
• Employment advice including Statutory Sick Pay and rights when laid off work
• Advice for the self employed
We are open to help by phone
Dorset Adviceline: 0344 411 1444
If your call isn’t answered please leave a message and we will call you back as soon as possible.
Following advice from national government we made the decision to temporarily suspend all face to face advice provision.
From 1st June our offices in Dorchester and Gillingham have reopened for face to face advice and help. We are running a triage service alongside video call access to advisers, all within the government guidelines on social distancing.
We will keep this position under constant review.
