Our service could not be delivered without the time, experience and skills of our Volunteers. Could you be one of them? We have a number of roles. This leaflet also provides a useful overview of volunteering with the Citizens Advice service.
Advisers work with people to explore the problems they face and the options available to them. They support people with a range of issues including benefits, debt, housing and employment. We need Volunteers who can commit to 1-2 days a week for at least a year. You would need to undergo 3 months initial training, followed by a further 6 – 9 months to gain your certificate.
We always need help fundraising! No experience is required as tasks generally include researching potential funders, which can be done over the internet either from our offices or from home. Fundraising tasks can last a couple of weeks to several months, so you can do as much as you want to in a flexible manner.
We always need people with IT skills to support our systems, computers and website. You don’t need to be an IT expert, just willing to learn and help. This kind of volunteering can be on a regular or ad-hoc basis.
Our Trustees oversee the governance of the charity and meet approximately every two months to review progress, set strategy and make decisions. More information about being a trustee is available here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/charity-trustee-whats-involved
