Contacting us while remote working- updated from Tuesday 22nd June

Our office remains closed and Community Base reception is closed. But staff are still here for you to offer support. Some staff are now back in the office, but the days vary and also the availability of staff to answer the landlines.

The best way to contact us is still by email. Please email if this is possible and we can then agree a mutually convenient time to speak. But individual staff are available on their work mobiles as well.

Please be aware that many members of the team work part time and also often have busy diaries and may not be able to answer their mobiles straight away.

Please contact the relevant member of staff, depending on what you would like support with. If you are unsure, please contact Debbie Taylor on the main Assert email address
