We can all face problems that are too stressful or complicated to sort out alone.
Last year Citizens Advice 150 volunteers advised over 11,000 people. They helped three quarters resolve their debt, benefits, employment and housing problems.
They now need more advisers to help during and after the Covid-19 crisis.
The main offices are in Abingdon, Didcot, Henley and Thame. Since March, 90 volunteers and staff have been advising the public from home on their Adviceline service. Recently they partially re-opened their offices, in part to train new advisers.
What will you get out of it?
You will join a friendly team, meet new people, develop your skills and make a real difference to people’s lives.
You’ll need to have good listening and interpersonal skills, a willingness to learn and be confident with computers. Full training will be provided.
If you have eight hours a week to spare for the next two years or more and are looking for a satisfying and stimulating volunteer role in your local community, please contact them at: www.citizensadvice.org.uk/local/oxfordshire-south-vale/volunteer/
