Wolverhampton Information, Advice & Support Service


Covid-19 Support and Guidance

We are still operational and offering information, advice and support in line with government instruction about staying safe whilst working.   We have collated resources and information that we hope you will find useful at this time.  Visit Useful Resources to support families during lockdown 

At present, the easiest way to contact us is to email ias.service@wolverhampton.gov.uk or via our social media channels on Facebook and Twitter @wolvesIASS.  We have limited access to our phones so if you do call and leave a message, it may take us longer to get back to you than usual. 

We wish you and your family well at this time.
