STAY ALERT – CONTROL THE VIRUS - SAVE LIVES
Due to the latest Government advice on Corona virus Body Positive Dorset will remain closed until further notice. Please follow the Government's advice and stay at home as much as possible. We are looking into ways so that we can open while still maintaining social distancing and cleaning requirements. This may start in June but for Service Users it will be strictly on an appointment basis only.
We are still offering phone support on 07866 793496, we will support you as best we can. If you think you may have Coronavirus please click here and follow the instructions on the page. We have recently started virtual drop-in sessions on a Friday afternoon, if you would like to join in then contact Sam on 07866 793496.
All DWP face to face health assessments have temporarily been suspended, if you have an appointment do not attend, the DWP will contact you by phone or letter to explain what happens next. Some medical assessments are being carried out over the phone, we can support you with these at the centre using the phone on loudspeaker, whilst still maintaining social distancing. If you are a new claimant and are waiting for a medical assessment you will be contacted by the DWP by phone or letter.
Job centre appointments have been cancelled until further notice, please check here for further information.
Any change in your circumstances must be reported to the DWP in the normal manner. If you are on ESA or JSA you can call 0800 169 0310, and if you are on Universal Credit you can log on to your account here.
