• Citizen’s Advice East Devon—Tim Bridger
CAB East Devon is particularly active:
Our dedicated team of 70 staff and volunteers offer a range of advice services ensuring the 140,000 residents of East Devon can contact us for advice and guidance.
It is clearly very welcome too:
We can help your employment journey! If it’s confidence you need, or perhaps changing career we have the support here for you.
As its CEO Tim Bridger said in the middle of last year:
“Being able to talk things over with a trained advisor and understand what needs to be done and how it can be done is a huge boost.”
Many of the enquiries Citizens Advice are receiving locally relate to accessing food supplies, benefit applications, debt advice, information on job security, and finding a way through the maze of information and help available from government and local organisations.
And there are regular news pieces showcasing the important across-the-board services CAB offers:
Difficulties are all around us, and are there to be overcome!
Families hit by the Covid-19 pandemic could be in line for help with their fuel bills, thanks to a new scheme launched through Citizens Advice Devon… money from the Covid Winter Grant would be available to families in need due to changing financial circumstances
With our current world ever changing and our clients’ needs altering, significantly around employment and redundancy, Citizens Advice East Devon are keen to raise awareness of the free services available to those who find themselves in difficulty.
