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

A Citizens Advice Devon project, the Quids for Kids project provides benefits information and advice for families with children who have additional needs or a disability, young people aged 16-21 who have special needs or disabilities, young homeless people, care leavers and foster carers.

Council support during COVID

 Devon’s district councils are providing various types of financial support for people on a low income or people whose income has reduced as a result of the pandemic. They are also running helplines for people who need urgent help with things like shopping or people who need support because they are lonely or isolated.
