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.

During the new lockdown from January 2021 we are open for triage at our Dorchester and Gillingham offices but our face-to-face service at our Sherborne and Weymouth & Portland offices, and all outreaches, are temporarily suspended.

We will keep this position under constant review.

Our triage service is provided within the government guidelines on social distancing.

For detailed information on how to access advice at this time please visit our Coronavirus Update page.
