We provide free, confidential and impartial advice. Our goal is to help people find a way forward, whatever problems they face, and to campaign for change on the big issues affecting people’s lives. We’re an independent charity and part of the Citizens Advice network.
We can help with most everyday problems including entitlement to benefits, employment, housing and debt. The majority of our staff are volunteers and the service is dependent on grants and donations.
Our new website is now taking shape over at citizensadviceteignbridge.org.uk.
At the end of the third year of our Big Lottery Funded MS project, we have reviewed the impact of Welfare Reform on people with MS. We welcome your comments to email@example.com
Our thanks to Anne Marie Morris MP for chairing our fourth social policy event. 85 people from a wide range of organisations attended and expressed considerable concern about how welfare reform is affecting people with disabilities or long term health conditions. Our thanks also to our speakers Laura Wetherly from the MS Society, Beth Grossman SCOPE, Sue Rook, Devon County Council, Sally Crozier from Teiginbridge CAB and Beth Jaynes. You can view their speaker notes online. You can also view the full research report “Proving the Value of Advice in Devon”
If you would like to comment on these issues please email firstname.lastname@example.org

We are offering a low cost IT Support Service to voluntary and community groups and also delivering low cost commercial IT Support. Funded by the Big Lottery Fund, we are trying to make this service self financing by July 2015 so that we can continue to support the voluntary sector into the future. See advert below.
“Phoned Ian yesterday afternoon (phone number from your flyer) with a printer problem. Arrived 9.30 this morning, fixed it. Excellent service”.
Adviceline is operated by bureaux across Devon and is open every weekday from 9.30am to 4.00pm. Calls cost the same as phoning 01 and 02 numbers. When you call, it’s a good idea to have something to take notes with, and any paperwork that relates to what you’re calling about. The person you speak to will take some details and ask you a few questions to see how we can best help you.
