About Citizens Advice Teignbridge
We help people find a way forward
We can all face problems that seem complicated or intimidating. At Citizens Advice Teignbridge, we believe no one should have to face these problems without good quality, independent advice.
That’s why we’re here: to give people the knowledge and the confidence they need to find their way forward – whoever they are, and whatever their problem.
We give advice to millions of people
We’re part of a network of independent charities that offers confidential advice online, over the phone, and in person, for free.
When we say we’re for everyone, we mean it. People rely on us because we’re independent and totally impartial.
Every year thousands of people come to us for help solving their problems. We help people find a way forward with a broad range of issues mostly about money, benefits, housing, employment and relationships. In some cases we also achieve income gains for our clients. Maximising the income for those we help prevents more costly intervention. This helps reduce financial difficulty, promotes inclusion and benefits the local economy.
We speak up for our clients
No one else sees so many people with so many different kinds of problems, and that gives us a unique insight into the challenges people are facing today.
With the right evidence, we can show big organisations – from companies right up to the government – how they can make things better for people.
We see how problems can be linked. By helping people with the underlying cause of their problems and making sure they don’t get worse, we save the government and public services hundreds of millions of pounds every year.
