– by drop-in service

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 reopened for face to face advice and help.

Our Sherborne and Weymouth offices have now also reopened.

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.
