We are really pleased to announce that a new ‘drop-in’ advice session will start at Stoke Library, Kingsway, CV2 4EA, on Friday 8th September. The session will run every Friday from 9:30 am.
You do not need an appointment but please note that the time available is limited and our adviser is normally only able to see a small number of people at each session. We see people on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis and we may have to ask you to come back another day once the session is full.
If you have a form to fill in, or if you think your enquiry might take a while to deal with, please call us to see if an appointment is available.
We are sorry to announce that our drop-in sessions at Richard Lee Children Centre in Wyken are to close. The last session will be on Monday 24th July.
We hope to announce a new service in the area over the summer. But, for now, we would like to thank Ruth and all the team at Richard Lee for making us so welcome and for supporting this valuable service.
