New information service to help Devon residents
RESIDENTS can get rapid help and information on matters ranging from health issues to debt problems thanks to a free new service.
The Devon Advice Network (DAN) is made up of a hosting public and voluntary agencies, including the Citizens Advice Bureau, Age UK and Shelter, working together to make sure people get the right advice.
DAN this week announced the launch of a new website – www.askdan.me - which offers visitors detailed information on money, benefits, health, employment, legal rights, consumer issues and more.
The site has won the backing of Devon County Council (DCC).
Councillor Jeremy Yabsley, DCC chairman, said: “. As the need for timely, accurate, advice is ever more pressing for the people of Devon, DAN is an important first step.”
