The Department does not hold this information. Citizens Advice has provided the following data on the number of field offices, including bureaux and outreach services. Outreaches are not bureaux in their own right, but constitute places where services are delivered such as GP surgeries, libraries etc. Services are also delivered from another 1,000 ad-hoc locations on a one-off or short term basis. As these are not regularly provided services, the information is not captured by post code.
