During 2020/21, volunteers and staff at Citizens Advice Watford helped more than 5000 people in their local community with issues including benefits, housing, debt, employment, relationship breakdown and consumer. Without our team of dedicated volunteers, we would not be able to do this vital work.
Following the challenges of the past two years the demand for advice and advocacy remains high, and we are looking forward to welcoming new volunteers to our service. If you would like to play a part in supporting people in your local community, please read our booklet Volunteering at Citizens Advice Watford for details of the roles we have available and the requirements for each role.
At present we have volunteering opportunities for Receptionists, Administrators and Research & Campaigns assistants. Our next Gateway Learning Programme will start in September and we expect to hold an information morning in June or July for anyone interested in applying. In the meantime, an admin, reception or R&C role can be a good way to start volunteering by getting to know the organisation and the team.
Citizens Advice believes that the skills, experience and satisfaction that come from volunteering should be available to everyone. We welcome volunteers from all walks of life, backgrounds and communities to reflect the diversity of the community we serve. If you would like to apply for a role please submit an enquiry form and we will aim to respond within 5 working days. We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to our team of dedicated and committed volunteers here at Citizens Advice Watford.
