Our trained advisers will be on hand every Friday to help Totnes residents with problems including housing, debt, consumer issues as well as benefit and disability entitlement.

With demand for advice services higher in Totnes than any other part of Devon, there’s a real need for this service. We are delighted that funding from Totnes Town Council is helping us to forge a new partnership with the Caring Town Information Exchange. This can only be a good thing for the residents of Totnes“.

We signpost a lot of people to them for practical help with all sorts of problems. We're very happy to help bring them into the middle of the town every Friday, making them more accessible to those who find travelling to Follaton House difficult. Hopefully more people will get the help they need".
