Video Chat Consultation Session: 

Our video consultation sessions enable you to get a more in-depth consultation in regards to your personal case and questions. The video chat allows for our advisors to show you information (such as websites and pamphlets) on the computer screen. In order to take part in the video session you need a computer/laptop or smartphone with a microfone and a stable internet connection. You are not required to switch on the video if you so choose. 


Every Tuesday from 2.00 p.m. to 4.00 p.m.
