Help people find a way forward by volunteering


CITIZENS Advice Stroud and Cotswold Districts is calling for volunteers of all backgrounds to deliver advice and support to local people.

The charity is recruiting new volunteers who can give their time to help people struggling with housing, benefits, energy issues and more

Last year the charity supported 5067 people across the two districts. It can only do this work thanks to its dedicated team of volunteers.

Volunteers offer advice to people in person, online or over the phone. The charity says no previous experience is necessary as full training will be provided. Information sessions about the organisation and the role of adviser will be held on Wednesday 9 November at the Cirencesteroffice, and on Monday 14 November at the Stroud office.

Citizens Advice Stroud and Cotswold Districts volunteers come from all walks of life and choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons.
