Devon Welfare Rights Unit (DWRU) was established in 1989 by Citizens Advice with funding from Devon County Council (DCC) to provide support services to Devon CABx and other public sector organisations whose work involves advising people about entitlement to benefits.

Devon Welfare Rights Unit is a second tier specialist welfare rights service. This means that we provide support services to organisations rather than directly to members of the public.
