Information and advice over the telephone or by email
We can provide you with the information you need over the telephone or via email. We have a knowledgeable team who can advise you on a number of topics. If we don’t have the answers or you need some more specialist support on a certain issue we will make sure we put you in touch with someone who will be able to help you.
Face to face at an advice surgery
Sometimes to give you the right support we may need to ask you to pop in and see us at one of our advice surgeries. Our surgeries are run twice a week from our office at The Littledown Centre in Bournemouth. We would like to offer more surgeries around Dorset and are working towards obtaining funding to make this possible. We are hoping to start offering them in the west of the county in the near future.
One to one advocacy support in times of crisis
If you are dealing with multiple, complex issues, that are having a significant impact on your life then you may be offered support from our crisis advocacy service. This service offers one to one support, provided by a Caseworker, to help you to find your way out of your crisis and get your life back on track. This service is funded by the lottery and is available in the east and the west of Dorset.
