We closed the doors to our New Milton premises in Old Milton Road on Thursday 9 February to move into our new home.
The New Milton team is looking forward to welcoming clients to their new premises, to continue to give clients advice on welfare benefits, debt, housing and more.
Citizens Advice New Forest, New Milton office reopens on Monday 20th February at 10 am at:
16 Whitefield Road,
Normal opening hours of 10.00 – 14,00 will resume, Monday – Thursday. The new office is close to the town centre and the rail station, is easily reached as well as being modern, comfortable and accessible to wheelchair users.
Jeff Wiltshire, Operations Manager, Citizens Advice New Forest, says of the move:
‘Citizens Advice services across the New Forest are more needed than ever, with welfare changes continuing to have an effect on the lives of local people. Universal Credit will bring its own challenges, and we continue to give advice to clients who are struggling with their bills during this period of austerity. Debt is a mounting problem among local people, and can affect housing as well as having very negative effects on health and well-being.
As such, we are delighted to welcome clients to such a modern new office in New Milton. It can take a lot of courage for clients to make the first step to seek out our services, and we hope that by offering them such a comfortable, pleasant environment, we can encourage them to talk to us before they reach crisis point. We’re also very pleased that our highly valued volunteers and staff have such modern facilities and premises to work from.’
