Arrange a face to face session
You can call us to make an appointment to see someone, or pop in – where you will have an initial chat with one of our team to see how we can best help you.
We are often very busy and so we may not be able to deal with your query straight away, but if we must ask you to come back for an appointment, we will do our best to make sure you get some initial information.
Sometimes we may need you to bring in specific documents but if you call ahead we can explain this before you drop in.
We are just five-minute walk from Anglia Square or Tombland bus stops. and fifteen-minute walk from Castle Meadow, and Norwich train/bus stations. The closest carpark is the Magdalen Street pay and display on St Saviours Lane.
We are located on the corner of Fishergate and Whitefriars, next to the bridge. Please buzz the bell and we will let you in.
