Citizens Advice Information Morning Chesham Tuesday 18 June
Thursday, May 23rd, 2019
A local charity, Citizens Advice Chiltern helps over 5,000 people a year in the Chiltern community to tackle problems of debt and money management, high energy bills, benefits, housing, employment law and consumer affairs. It performs an essential role in our society, with many of these services delivered by trained volunteers.
CAB Chiltern is holding an Information Morning on Tuesday 18th June at Chesham Town Hall from 10.00-11.30am. The purpose of the 90 minute session is to inform those interested in volunteering what is involved in training to be an adviser with CAB Chiltern.
You can book a place by calling 01494 774748 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Why Volunteer for CAB Chiltern?
The text below is taken from CAB Chiltern’s Volunteer page:
We have about 60 volunteers, without whom Citizens Advice Chiltern simply would not operate. Every day they do a fantastic job helping local people with their issues.
By joining us you will become part of a well-established, growing advice network which really values its volunteers.
Our aims are to provide the advice people need and to improve the policies and practices that affect people’s lives. We can offer comprehensive training and support, a good social network, rewarding work and opportunities for personal development. In return we ask for a regular commitment.
We typically train volunteers as generalist or specialist advisers, but we sometimes have opportunities for those who wish to help with administration, publicity, marketing, campaigning or fundraising.
5 reasons to volunteer
- Make a real difference to people’s lives
- Get to know your community
- Meet new people and make friends
- Be part of an enthusiastic team
- Improve your prospects and skills
Who can volunteer?
Our guiding principles are to ‘value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination’. We know that it’s only by having diverse staff and volunteers that we can do these things properly. We are committed to equality of opportunity in recruitment and training, and offer a warm welcome to every volunteer, whatever their background.
