1-to1 Advice and Information - what can you expect?
One of our workers will talk with you by telephone or face to face in an appointment. Alternatively you can also email us your enquiries. The worker will initially discuss your concerns, and then, depending on your enquiry provide information or help identify options for you.
This could include help researching information or planning actions with you. Such actions could include wellbeing advice, such as self-help and understanding treatments or accessing support and services or any of the areas in the list above.
The worker won’t tell you what to do or make judgements on your situation but work with you to make the information we provide relevant to you and what help you are looking for.
