Welcome to Citizens Advice South Hams

What we do
Life can be challenging. We all face problems from time to time. Whatever problem you’re facing, or query you might have, our mission is to provide the information and advice you need, to help you find a way forward.

We help thousands of people each year and when we identify policies and practices that are unfairly affecting people’s lives we campaign for change.
We take pride that our services are – and always will be – free, independent, impartial and confidential. You can rely on us.

How we can help
Based at Follaton House in Totnes, we work across the South Hams and surrounding area. Our team of over 40 trained volunteers and paid staff help over 4,000 local people each year. We can help with household bills, debt, benefits and working tax credits, employment issues, housing issues, relationship problems and more. Last year we helped resolve over 9,000 issues and generated more than £1.9m benefit to our clients.

You can access advice from our website, by telephone, by email or by dropping into our offices in Totnes or one of our outreach centres in Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, or Ivybridge.

Need advice?

We’re here to help. We’re available online, over the phone and face to face. Phone Adviceline on 03444 111444, email us, or you can drop in and see us at Totnes, Ivybridge, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth.
