Welcome To Citizens Advice Devon
We are a consortium of seven local Citizens Advice charities in Devon which provide free, confidential and impartial advice to help people find a way forward, whatever problems they face.
Citizens Advice Devon supports the Citizens Advice service across the county, and runs a number of Devon-wide projects.
Together, we help more than 34,000 people solve their problems each year everywhere from the cities of Plymouth & Exeter to the villages and the communities of rural Devon
