Volunteering Opportunities 2022

It’s easy to feel disconnected from your community, as you juggle work, family and jobs around the house. One of the most satisfying, fun, and productive ways to get to know your neighbours is through volunteering for community service projects. Just a small amount of your time can make a big difference to an organisation or person that needs your help.

We are incredibly fortunate to have a team of more than 60 volunteers who support us in many ways, from giving information and advice to clients to helping with fundraising, administration, and social media campaigns.  Our brilliant board of trustees are also volunteers, responsible for setting the direction of the charity and ensuring we stay solvent.

We are always happy to hear from anyone who would like to join us.  Our volunteer roles are varied, challenging and rewarding; hours are flexible so fit well with family or other existing commitments.

We currently have vacancies for volunteers to join us in the following roles:

Disability Benefits Team – specialist volunteers who support clients to complete complex application forms.  Full training and supervision given.

Admin Support – working with our disability benefit team, making and receiving phone calls and updating client records.

Community Volunteers – help us raise awareness of the varied support and advice we offer in your village, parish or ward; keep leaflets well stocked in your local community settings

Trainee Advisers – exploring and identifying clients’ problems, researching information using Citizens Advice resources and explaining options to clients or helping them make informed decisions about how to deal with their problems.
