Coronavirus Update:

It is with great regret that we have had to suspend all our appointment & drop-in services. However, if you need our help, we are doing everything possible to maintain our support in these difficult times.

We have therefore increased our resources for telephone and email services. As you can imagine our phone lines are very busy and it may prove difficult to connect without holding for an extended period.

If you wish to email us, please go to the tab above and select ‘More From Us’ , the list that will drop down includes the option of email advice (‘Advice By Email’).

Alternatively, you can click on the following button to use this option Advice by Email

Please select an option and complete your details there. Please include as much information about the matter you need assistance with. We will contact you as quickly as possible. This is the fastest way to get to us and the help you require.

If you are calling on our Adviceline you will be given the option to leave a voicemail message which again will avoid the need to hold on the line. We will again contact you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience and support.
