How to get free, impartial and confidential advice

Visit the Citizens Advice website or Money Map Tool for detailed information on a wide range of topics, including guidance on benefits, debt, money, work, housing and much more.


We are still here to offer advice and assistance, but can no longer operate a drop in face-to-face service.

It’s easy to access our advice through the following methods:

Telephone – 01382 214633 – Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm. Phonelines will be closed for lunch between 1pm-2pm.

A triage worker will take your details and arrange for a callback from an adviser. Please be aware that any callbacks from the bureau will appear as a withheld number.

E-mail –

Please send us a summary of your query. We will respond with a form email explaining data protection issues and the further information we will need. If you do not receive this, please check your junk email folder. Once we receive your response, an adviser will contact you within five working days.

Video conferencing

Telephone 01382 214633 to arrange an appointment.

Face to face advice is only available by appointment and only for complex enquiries, such as immigration enquiries, benefits forms or full debt advice, or if you cannot access our service by any of the methods above. To book an appointment, please telephone 01382 214633.

Any paperwork or forms which are to be handled by our advisers must be delivered to the bureau prior to your appointment either electronically or at least 72 hours in advance of your appointment

If you or someone in your household are experiencing symptoms associated with coronavirus, please do not attend the bureau.

People attending for appointments will have to follow the procedures which have been put in place to maintain a safe and healthy environment.

We are exceptionally busy during these challenging times and appreciate your patience.

Phone us

Give us a call to get advice on any issues or problems you’re facing, or to arrange an appointment at the bureau.

We can help with relatively simple issues over the phone, particularly if you’re looking for a quick answer to something straight-forward.

Email us

Send us an email with information about the issue you’re having and what type of advice you would like. Email is a useful way to contact us if you don't need an answer urgently. We’ll aim to get back to you as soon as possible.
