COVID-19 Update:

ue to COVID 19, our walk-in service is currently not available. We are offering face to face appointments together with continuing to provide advice and assistance via telephone, email, webchat, virtual meetings and social media. Our current opening hours are: Monday to Thursday 9-5pm and Fridays 9am-4.30pm.

Face to face appointments will be managed by our booking system. We need to minimise the number of clients coming into our service to ensure social distancing can be observed.

We would kindly ask you to first make contact via telephone, email or webchat whereby our team will undertake an initial assessment to determine if an appointment is required.

Advice Portsmouth runs a walk in centre and as such no appointments are necessary. You will be welcomed by reception staff who often can offer a helpful leaflet or answer any general enquiry. If you require further assistance beyond that provided by reception you be directed to the comfortable waiting area.
