Tamworth Advice Centre

Advice centre logoFrom Monday April 3, the debt and general advice service based at Marmion House in Lichfield Street will be renamed Tamworth Advice Centre and will be provided by Citizens Advice Mid Staffordshire.

The new provider will be bringing in a number of improvements, including a switch to an appointments system and more ways of access to the service for customers, including webchat and Skype.

Free digital skills workshops will also be on offer, giving customers the opportunity to gain new skills.

Tamworth Advice Centre will continue to use its own reception area in Marmion House, which is staffed from 10am to 4pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, and from 1pm to 5pm on Wednesday. The telephone will also be answered from 9am to 5pm Monday to Thursday and 9am to 12noon on Friday for advice and appointment bookings.

The new number for advice and booking appointments with Tamworth Advice Centre is 03444 111 444 (local rate number) and the email address is tamworthadvicecentre@gmail.com

Although the service is switching to an appointment-only system, people in crisis will still be able to drop in for emergency help and advice.
