Working with You – Drop-in Services
We invite you to come along to our Bournemouth office which is in the West Wing of the Town Hall in the Town Centre, opposite the Gardens.
Also, our doors are open Monday to Friday from 9:45am to 3:30pm (but please note that our drop-in service is from 10am with last clients being seen from 2:30pm).
Furthermore, you will be greeted by our Reception Team who will ask for some information from you and then you will be assessed by an assessor and she or he will then let you know the best way we will work with you.
That could be in any of the following ways:
- Information during initial assessment
- Generalist or Specialist adviser appointment
- Signpost to a different organisation

Working with You – Appointments
Appointments are only available if we are already helping you with an issue when the assessor during the initial assessment feels they are necessary. Additionally, if you are a new client or have a new issue please contact AdviceLine, email us or come to a drop in session.
Of course, if you are offered an appointment and find that you no longer need it please let us know, this can be done by e-mail or by phone. Equally important, if you no longer wish to attend your appointment that you tell us so that another client can be seen in your place.
