Be part of the next 80 years of volunteering at Citizens Advice Bracknell & District
Citizens Advice Bracknell and District wants people to be part of the next 80 years of its history by volunteering with them. The Citizens Advice service started almost 80 years ago on the eve of the Second World War and is supported by 22,000 volunteers across England and Wales
As part of Volunteers’ Week, which runs from 1st June to 7th June, Citizens Advice Bracknell & District wants to thank current volunteers for their contribution and welcome new recruits to help bring the charity into its next 80 years.
The 60 volunteers at Citizens Advice Bracknell and District contribute 363 hours each week and last year helped 2,929 people with 18,674 problems, such as debt, housing, benefit and employment issues.
Volunteers at Citizens Advice help us in roles such as giving our clients information and advice, raising funds, keeping the service running smoothly, and helping with the strategic direction of the organisation.
Callum Pirson, Media and Communications Volunteer at Citizens Advice Bracknell & District said:
“I became a volunteer because I was looking for some work experience to put on my CV, and despite now having a full time job I still find time to continue my media and communications based volunteering role. The feeling that through my role I am helping the organisation and more importantly improving the lives of people in our community mainly through awareness is why I still continue to volunteer here”.
Tina Stevenson, Chief Officer at Citizens Advice Bracknell & District said:
“Our volunteers contribute their time and energy to make a huge difference to people’s lives and help keep our vital service running. If you’d like to help people in your community, and can spare a few hours a week, we’d love to hear from you.”
