Local charity Dacorum Citizens Advice is looking to recruit volunteers to help the local community get the information, advice and support it needs.
We will be holding two open day events and are very pleased that local independent coffee shop Tiki’s will be hosting the weekend event.
On Saturday 24th October from 9:30am until 4pm we will be in Tiki’s at 208 Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead in their upstairs seating area. If you have difficulties with stairs or cannot make Saturday we are holding a further event on Friday 30th October from 10am until 3pm at Dacorum Citizens Advice, 19 Hillfield Road, Hemel Hempstead (just before entrance to Asda car park).
Anyone who would like to know more about Citizens Advice and how they can make a difference by volunteering is welcome to come along for a coffee and a chat.
The events will highlight the opportunities that are available for a range of voluntary roles at the Citizens Advice offices in Hillfield Road, Hemel Hempstead.
Dacorum Citizens Advice boss Victoria MacGregor said: “The work of Dacorum Citizens Advice wouldn’t be possible without our fantastic team of volunteers. Nationally, ninety per cent of Citizens Advice workers are volunteers. There are many ways to get involved – you could train to be an Adviser, work on our Reception, take calls from members of the public, or help with fundraising, publicity or our campaigning work.
In any role, you will develop your skills in a number of valuable areas, like communication, IT and dealing with the public, as well as increasing your self-confidence through practical hands-on experience. In addition, our Citizens Advice adviser training is respected and valued throughout the UK advice sector.
We are looking for people of all ages and backgrounds. For many people, the best thing about volunteering for the CAB is getting to meet a wide range of people and making new friends. There is a real team spirit in our offices, and we provide a supportive environment to make sure that you get the most out of your time with us.
Above all, it is a chance to make a real difference. By volunteering for Citizens Advice you will be playing an active part in improving the lives of millions of people and influencing the development of national and local policies and service. And you will not be out of pocket – we will cover travel costs incurred by volunteering.
Anyone is welcome to come along to see us on 24th & 30th October and have a chat about the work we do and how you can become a volunteer.”
