We offer information, advice, guidance and casework in 11 key areas:
Benefits, Employment, Debt and Money, Consumer, Relationships, Housing, Law and Rights, Discrimination, Tax, Healthcare, and Education.
We recognise that one problem can sometimes be the result of another so, rather than addressing a single issue at a time we look at a client’s whole situation. This way, other potential problems can be identified early which prevents them getting worse. If the situation has already escalated to crisis, then we are responsive and can utilise our robust network of connections to support or negotiate solutions.
We deliver our services across Dudley Borough and the City of Wolverhampton in a number of different ways:
- By telephone
- By email
- By webchat
- Via digital face to face appointment
- Via in person face to face appointment – Depending on your issue an appointment will be either made for you at our Stone Street, Dudley site, or our brand new Wolverhampton site (opening soon) or at one of our many community venues that we are in the process of opening up. We will be able to update you on the options when you come through to us for an appointment;
