Welcome To Citizens Advice Devon

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

How to get advice

Following the lifting of the restrictions put in place during the coronavirus pandemic, each of the local Citizens Advice offices across Devon are putting in place their own arrangements for providing face-to-face advice.
