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.

The full report and associated papers are available on their website.
