In order to make it even easier for Island residents to get all the information and advice they need, Citizens Advice Isle of Wight is moving from its current premises in Newport High Street directly across the road into the new combined Isle Help advice centre.
The County Hall reception area is currently being renovated to create a comfortable, flexible and confidential space. Along with other partners including Age UK IW, Citizens Advice IW will take up residence in the new hub from Monday 19th November.
Citizens Advice IW Chief Executive, Paul Savill says:
“Our charity is really pleased to be part of the new advice centre and we are looking forward to providing our service in a bright new space that will be so much better for volunteers, staff and public alike”.
Citizens Advice IW will continue to operate as an independent charity offering free, impartial advice to anyone who needs it. Their generalist advice and specialist advice teams such as Tax, Macmillan, Welfare, Money Advice and Help Through Crisis will all continue to be available in their current outreach locations and in the new Advice Centre as well as online and on the phone.
The current Citizens Advice offices will be closed on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th November to allow for everything to be moved across to the new Centre. Anyone who needs help or advice during this time can call the standard advice number as normal on 03444 111 or access information through the website www.citizensadviceiw.org.uk.
