Volunteer

 

Our volunteers and volunteering

We have about 60 volunteers, without whom Citizens Advice Chiltern simply would not operate. Every day they do a fantastic job helping local people with their issues.

By joining us you will become part of a well-established, growing advice network which really values its volunteers.

Our aims are to provide the advice people need and to improve the policies and practices that affect people’s lives. We can offer comprehensive training and support, a good social network, rewarding work and opportunities for personal development. In return we ask for a regular commitment.

We typically train volunteers as generalist or specialist advisers, but we sometimes have opportunities for those who wish to help with administration, publicity, marketing, campaigning or fundraising.  

5 reasons to volunteer

  1. Make a real difference to people’s lives

  2. Get to know your community

  3. Meet new people and make friends

  4. Be part of an enthusiastic team

  5. Improve your prospects and skills

Who can volunteer?

Our guiding principles are to ‘value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination’. We know that it’s only by having diverse staff and volunteers that we can do these things properly. We are committed to equality of opportunity in recruitment and training, and offer a warm welcome to every volunteer, whatever their background.

What our volunteers say

“The training was extremely thorough. The support is fantastic from everyone in the bureau. I find being an adviser rewarding, stimulating, at times humbling, and very enjoyable.” – Barbara

“I get a sense of being involved. I like being part of the bureau activities and keeping up with issues, and we have a laugh too.” – Karin

“The Citizens Advice service challenges the social issues I feel passionate about. As a trustee I can help redress the imbalance of injustice” – John

“I wish I’d started 30 years ago! I’ve learned new skills, including computing. Volunteering with Citizens Advice keeps you involved with the real world.” – Sheila
