Information & Advice

Being given the correct information and advice is crucially important in promoting the independence, involvement and interests of older people.

We offer local information on topics such as tradespeople and social activities and supply Age UK guides and factsheets.

Working with partner organisations we can help you access advice on a wide range of issues including benefits advice, social care, housing, consumer issues, health, keeping warm in the winter, transport, power of attorney, wills and funeral planning.

We provide a telephone service, on 01202 488311, and drop in and appointments at the office Monday-Friday (closed Wednesdays) between 10am and 1pm. The service is available to people over 60, their relatives and carers and who live in Christchurch.
