Citizens Advice South Hams is a local independent charity that every year helps thousands of local residents resolve problems with debt, housing, homelessness, disabilities, benefit entitlement and more.

I found the staff of Citizens Advice South Hams to be very understanding and helpful. I was so worried that without your help I could not have resolved the issue alone, I am so grateful for the help I received.
