The centre will be closed from Thursday 20 November 2018, and reopening Thursday 3 January 2019.
The last drop-in session will be Wednesday 12 December, starting at 5.30pm. There will also be no more employment or housing evening appointments until we return in the new year.
We are excited to announce that from Monday 5 November, we will be providing advice on family matters in the Truro area.
The advice will be using a live video chat service through our website where you can speak to a solicitor about any questions you have.
The system works on most computers/smartphones (sorry no Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge!)
We provide a laptop in the Truro Family court which you can use to chat with us. There will be volunteers available, who will be there to help you chat to us.
The service is open 9:30am – 4:00pm every Monday.
You will also be able to send us documents online to look through while giving advice.
Interested? Find more information and the chat system on our Cornwall advice page
