Volunteers wanted

by | 10 August 2021 | Citizens Advice, Gainsborough

Citizens Advice Lindsey are currently looking for volunteer telephone advisers to join the team in Gainsborough. Advisers help provide an effective and efficient advice service to members of the public and help influence government and other organisations by informing them of the effect of their actions on the lives of clients.
They are looking for volunteers who can commit to at least six months volunteering, and full training will be given.
Jenny Barnett, CEO at Citizens Advice Lindsey said: “Thanks to our amazing volunteers we are able to continue making a huge difference to people’s lives. Our volunteers give up their time for free to help people who may be going through problems to get back on their feet.
“Volunteering also brings its own rewards and is a great way to meet new people and learn new skills. People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Regardless of the motivation, what unites them all is that they find it both challenging and rewarding.
“If you can spare at least one day each week, we’d love to hear from you.”
Nationally, Citizens Advice relies on over 21,000 volunteers who help provide support in locations across England and Wales – helping over 2.8 million people in the past year.
Thanks to the contribution volunteers play in local Citizens Advice, two out of every three clients have their problem solved and four out of five say the advice received improved their lives.
