What we do
Whatever problem you’re facing, or query you might have, our dedicated team of volunteers and paid staff can provide the information and advice you need.
We’ll 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 this website – just type your query into the search bar – by telephone, email or by dropping into our offices in Totnes or one of our outreach centres in Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, or Ivybridge.
