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 affected by the current cost of living crisis 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.
Ron, volunteer at Citizens Advice Lindsey, said: “I started volunteering to give something back to the local community I live and work in, one of the best things about helping clients is the feeling of achievement for myself and the client sometimes when they don’t know where to turn.”
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.
