There are over 16,000 volunteers in the Citizens Advice service, but we still need new volunteers every year to help us meet the demand for advice.

Thousands of people volunteer and here’s some of the things they say:

“I love the fact that Citizens Advice encourages us, not only to develop our own abilities, but also to review what we do, how we do it, and how we can improve it. This creates an environment that encourages and supports change, which can only enhance the skills of our volunteers and the service our clients receive”.

“Volunteering at Citizens Advice gives you the opportunity to gain wider social knowledge & valuable people skills. I volunteered to give, but realized I actually gained”.

“Bringing out the best in yourself by helping someone through what may be the most difficult day in their life: the reward is greater than any payment”.

We have opportunities for people to train as volunteer advisers, gateway assessors, trustees, administrators, social policy campaigners and more. Find out more about what is in it for you if you join the world’s largest advice network.
