Citizens Advice

Published: 03 June 2020

Coronavirus Update

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.

Volunteers at Citizens Advice in Dorset will be working 7 days a week during the Coronavirus lockdown to ensure that local residents get the advice and information they need. We normally staff our telephone advice line 10am-4pm on weekdays but during the current crisis those hours will be extended to include Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-1pm.

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

Following advice from national government we have made the decision to temporarily suspend all face to face advice provision. We will keep this position under constant review.
