We are very pleased to announce the new Advice Dorset Network to be launched from 1st April 2016 and to invite all organisations providing advice and related support to residents of Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole to become members.

Member organisations will be part of a network of advice organisations in Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole, with opportunities to share information and good practice, network with other advice organisations, support each other and participate in collaborative working. Services will be offered to members which will complement the local work and initiatives of the Local Advice Networks.

Dorset Advice Strategy

Citizens Advice in Dorset has been commissioned by Dorset County Council to produce an Advice Strategy looking at the best way to meet people’s information and advice needs over the next 5 years. The Strategy explores national trends and the local environment, setting these within the context of the continuing impact of ‘austerity’ on both advice needs and service provision. Key to delivering quality advice available ‘at the right time, in the right place, and in a way that best meets a person’s needs’ is building a strong advice sector that works together effectively.
