Barrow Citizens Advice suspends face to face advice service
Barrow Citizens Advice has suspended its face to face advice service from today to safeguard our staff and importantly, our clients over half of whom have long term health conditions and are particularly vulnerable to infection.
Christine McKinlay, Chief Officer explained: "Unfortunately our building does not have sufficient space to enable the "social distancing" that helps prevent the spread of infection so we must act now to minimise the risk.
"We will continue to provide advice via phone and email and will use WhatsApp and other technologies to make sure we continue to meet the needs of our clients.
"We want to reassure people that the level of advice and support will be the same, its only the means of delivering the advice will be different for some people who've not used our phone or email service before."
Citizens Advice can be called on 0344 488 9624 or emailed via their website www.barrowcitizensadvice.org.uk
