Wiltshire Citizens Advice to Offer Services from the Library in Royal Wootton Bassett

Local charity, Wiltshire Citizens Advice is relocating its offices in Royal Wootton Bassett.

From Wednesday 7 February 2018, Wiltshire Citizens Advice will operate out of the Library in Royal Wootton Bassett. The charity will offer free advice and information services to the community, once a week on Wednesdays between 10am and 3pm.

Suzanne Wigmore, Chief Executive Officer, Wiltshire Citizens Advice said:
“We are delighted to be a part of the services on offer at the Library.

“In 2016/17 more than 200 people visited the CAB in Royal Wootton Bassett for help with 500 problems. However, our offices are not always that easy for people to find.

“It makes sense, financially and in practice for us to be where people are.

“We already work in partnership with Wiltshire Council and other organisations, by co-locating our services within the library we hope more people will be able to access our services and get the support they need.

“In Warminster, since moving into the library there last spring, we have seen a thirty per cent increase in the number of people coming to us for help. We are hoping this move will have a similar impact in Royal Wootton Bassett.

“The library will provide a central place in Royal Wootton Bassett for our advice services and our offices in the library will offer a much nicer environment for staff, volunteers and clients.”

Wiltshire Citizens Advice will reopen on Wednesday 7 February 2018 in their new offices at the Library, Borough Fields, Royal Wootton Bassett SN4 7AX. They will be open on Wednesdays between 10am and 3pm.

Outside these hours people can get advice online at citizensadvice.org.uk or over the phone, by calling 03444 111 444. Phone lines are open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays. You can also visit us at one of our other locations.
