Citizens Advice South Hams

We provide free, confidential and impartial advice. Our goal is to help you find a way forward, whatever problem you face, and to campaign for change on the issues affecting people's lives.

We’re an independent charity and part of the Citizens Advice network. Most of our 86-strong team are trained volunteers, and we are supported by local councils, a variety of specialist funders, and the general public. We serve a population of 87,000 across South Hams and handle thousands of enquiries each year.
