WE ARE STILL HERE; WE ARE STILL HELPING PEOPLE WTH PRIORITY ISSUES
We have launched an action plan to continue an essential service that focuses and targets those who are most vulnerable in our region.
DAGCAS has a duty of care to our clients, our staff, our volunteers and the public in complying with government guidance to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Therefore we have taken the difficult decision to stop all face to face contact with the public across all our bureaus and outreach clinics.
We are delivering an essential service that fully focuses its attention on telephone, webchat and email enquiries.
These are unprecedented times for everyone, we will be here to help people navigate through these challenges that we are facing. DAGCAS offers independent, impartial, free advice to people in Dumfries and Galloway. People are currently contacting us for help with issues such as Universal Credit, employment, finance and other benefits.
We are extra busy during these challenging times and appreciate your patience. To manage demand and pressure on our telephone lines we have a minium of 10 Advisers answering the phone lines and we are dealling with email enquiries as quickly as possible.
To help relieve the pressure on our phone lines please only call us if your enquiry is urgent, for all non-urgent enquiries please email. We thank you for this in advance.
