Raise a Cuppa to mark 80 years of Citizens Advice:

Giving people the knowledge and support they need to find their way forward…whoever they are, whatever the problem.

Holding a coffee morning or a tea party and Raising a Cuppa for Citizens Advice, means you’ll be helping with our core work of advising thousands of South Hams residents that come to us every year. 

We advise on matters like homelessness, employment, debt, housing as well as disability and benefit support plus lots more. 

We all face problems from time to time, at Citizens Advice we believe no one should face these difficult times on their own. That’s why we’re here. Our aim is to keep training our volunteers so we stay around to help everyone who asks, and by Raising a Cuppa and fundraising for us, you make that possible.

To Raise a Cuppa for us download your tea/coffee party pack.
For everyone, for the next 80 years.
