Face 2 Face

A long standing Debt advice project funded by Citizens Advice in a contract with Money Advice Service.

As part of the Government’s Financial Inclusion Fund (FIF) first established in 2004, £45 million was set aside for 2006 – 2008 to expand the capacity of the advice sector to deliver face-to-face debt advice. This support is targeted in particular at financially excluded clients.

The project has since been named Face to Face (F2F) and is run from our Barnstaple office by the F2F team, headed up by our Debt Advice Caseworker.
