Why are we looking for new volunteer advisers?
Life is getting harder for many people. People are still reeling from the loss of the Universal Credit uplift while dealing with increasing prices. The government has also admitted its plan to ease the cost of living isn’t satisfactory. So, the future looks bleak.
That’s why it’s so important that organisations like Citizens Advice have the resources to help people who are struggling.
Our clients put immense trust in our volunteer advisers, sharing problems that they might not even tell their families about. That’s because our values of confidentiality, independence and impartiality are central to the advice we give.
Why become a volunteer adviser at Citizens Advice?
Here are some of the reasons our current volunteers give.
“It’s a great feeling when you are able to close a successful case and know that you’ve made a big difference in someone’s life.”
“It gave me the opportunity to brush up on some of my skills and learn new skills.”
“There’s a brilliant social atmosphere.”
How do we help people?
We provide a way forward for people with multiple complex issues. Our advice covers a range of areas, such as debt, benefits, employment and housing issues.
