Young Citizens Advice Somerset

A project for under 25s

We aim to strengthen links with young people and those who work with them across Somerset. We can offer online updates to any group on what we do and how we can help. In short: Citizens Advice aims to help anyone who comes to us with a problem to find a way forward. We help you find the information you need to make your own decisions to move forward. We cover a vast range of topics. You can access our help online, via telephone and in person.
