Citizens Advice Sherwood & Newark is calling for volunteers of all backgrounds to deliver advice and support to local people.
The charity is launching a January appeal for new recruits who can give their time to help people struggling with issues such as housing, benefits, money management, employment or changes within the family.
Last year the charity supported 2582 people. It can only do this work thanks to its dedicated team of volunteers. Most of our volunteers deliver advice to people in person, by phone or online. Others are involved in Research & Campaigning, are members of our Trustee Board or help out with administrative functions.
The charity says no experience is necessary as full training will be provided. IT skills are required.
Citizens Advice Sherwood & Newark volunteers come from all walks of life and choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. They include students; people getting back into work after career breaks; people with part-time jobs; carers; and people who have retired.
Volunteers are often looking for new ways to gain valuable experience and enhance their skills, or to enjoy the opportunity to work with and meet different people.
