Have you ever considered supporting and making a real difference to the lives of people in your local community? We are always on the lookout for new volunteers across all our roles, but especially advisers currently.
Our volunteers are of a range of ages and come from different backgrounds with varied life experiences. Our volunteer roles are varied, challenging and rewarding and our volunteers really enjoy being able to make a valuable contribution and a positive impact on people’s lives.
Many of our volunteers help our clients online, over the phone and face to face, to explore the issues that they need help with and find the information they need to solve their problems.
Some roles involve supporting clients to find this information themselves and to take action, for example, to use a computer to manage their money, pay their council tax bill or find a rented property.
Other roles may involve helping clients with one specific issue, such as completing a benefits form, and many of our volunteers help clients with a range of issues, supporting them to weigh up their options and to take action.
Some examples of what you could do:
helping a client with debts work out a reasonable amount to pay back, and making a phone call to an organisation they owe money to.
exploring what benefits a client is entitled to and helping them to complete a benefit application form.
helping a client who has problems with their landlord to understand their housing rights.
No prior experience is necessary in these areas as you’ll receive full training. We are looking for new advisers to start training in autumn 2022, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or call 01306 732302 to leave a voicemail which will be listened to and we will call you back to discuss our opportunities.
