Service Details

Additional Information
There are two local Macmillan-funded services; one based at Poole Citizens Advice covering Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch, and the other managed from Dorchester Citizens Advice covering the county where we have four advisers working in Dorchester, Weymouth, Wimborne and Sherborne. These services are provided by a team of highly-skilled and experienced advisers who provide significant support to people at a very difficult time in their lives. There are significant financial outcomes (benefits and grants awarded), and the wider impact of the support on the lives of patients and their families is also very important.
Referral information
Referrals are accepted from health professionals or direct from the client. On receipt of a referral an adviser will contact the client as soon as possible to arrange a mutually convenient time and place for an appointment.
Some activities and family support services listed in our directory may be cancelled, postponed, or running in a different way due to coronavirus restrictions. Please contact providers to check for information about any changes.
