Bureau closed face-to-face

by Andy Bryenton

Citizens Advice Bureaux across the region have been advised to cease face-to-face consultations in an effort to contain the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19. 

The Citizens Advice Bureau New Zealand (CABNZ) has decided that all Citizens Advice Bureaux must cease providing a face to face service to clients due to the unfolding health emergency. This necessarily includes clinics, satellite services, CAB events and participating in public events. The measures will remain in effect until further notice due to the Covid-19 outbreak, during which time CAB will operate a phone and email service. 

The face to face service must cease by Friday 20th March, according to managerial directive. During the Covid-19 outbreak, the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) will no longer see clients face-to-face at the office. However, we’re still here by phone, 439 6100, email, dargaville@cab.org.nz and online chat at www.cab.org.nz. All services remain free and confidential during this unprecedented time.
