Coronavirus Update

We are working hard to maintain our support to people in Birmingham who need information, advice and guidance, or housing related support during this challenging time.

To ensure the safety of our service users, staff teams and volunteers, we are following the guidance issued by the Government and have now closed our buildings and offices to visitors until further notice.

Whilst we can no longer offer face-to-face support, our services will remain open and you can contact our staff teams through all the usual routes of communication, including telephone, facetime, skype, text and email. Please know that we are here to support you so get in touch with us, especially if you are feeling vulnerable during this difficult time.

Please contact us initially using the details below and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Information, Advice and Guidance Drop-in Service

We can provide information, advice and guidance on a range of issues and topics relevant to the client groups that we work with.
