The Dacorum District Citizens Advice Bureau are looking for new volunteers. The Bureau will be holding a Coffee and Pastries Open Morning on Friday 21st November 10.00am to 12.00 at their offices in Hillfield Road, Hemel Hempstead. The invitation is open to anyone who would like to know more about volunteering at the CAB.
The event will highlight the opportunities that are available for a range of voluntary roles working in the Bureau.
Dacorum District CAB boss Victoria MacGregor said: “The work of Dacorum CAB would not be possible without our volunteers. Nationally, ninety per cent of CAB workers are volunteers. There are many ways to get involved – you could train to be an adviser, help streamline the office administrative systems, or sit on our Trustee Board or help with fundraising, publicity or our social policy 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 CAB adviser training is respected and valued throughout the 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 here in our Dacorum Bureau, 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 the CAB 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 – the CAB will cover any travel costs incurred by volunteering.
Anyone is welcome to come along to see us on 21 November and have a chat about the work we do and how you can become a volunteer.”
