Citizens Advice Telford & the Wrekin

Local advice charity Citizens Advice Telford & Wrekin closes face-to-face services due to Corona Virus

In response to the emerging COVID-19 pandemic and in order to remain within government guidelines, Citizens Advice Telford & the Wrekin have closed their drop-in and appointment services at 40 Tan Bank and their community outreach services. However they remain committed to offering a service to the people of Telford & the Wrekin and will still offer advice and information online, by telephone, email and by letter.

Despite the challenges, Citizens Advice Telford & the Wrekin is determined to carry on. They have established a network of staff and volunteers working from home and are therefore able to offer services to local people through websites, telephone calls and emails. You can also write to them.

Citizens Advice Telford & the Wrekin CEO, Caro Hart said:

“Our staff and volunteers have risen magnificently to the challenge of doing their bit to beat this pandemic. We are all determined to continue to help our clients, by any means, particularly those who are most vulnerable. That is our priority, but staff and volunteers are also reaching out to each other to offer support with homeworking and I am sure we will come through this together.”
