Volunteering

Volunteer with us

 

For over 40 years Citizens Advice Wokingham have helped people right across the District. The majority of this impact has come from our wonderful volunteers. If you have an interest in helping your community, we have roles for you.

 

We will be holding a number of open days at our Wokingham Office in January 2019. Register your interest for this on our Google Form at the bottom of this page.
No experience is necessary to join our team. We have a supportive, welcoming and knowledgeable team who will help you settle in to your role. We welcome people of all backgrounds and experiences, and firmly believe in promoting equality in our communities - as well as our own organisation. All volunteers are allocated a mentor, who will guide and support you - willing to answer any questions! 

 

Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds, and volunteer with us for a range of reasons. Our roles are varied, challenging and rewarding and our volunteers really enjoy being able to make a valuable contribution and have a positive impact on people’s lives.

 

As a volunteer at Citizens Advice Wokingham you don’t need any specific qualifications or experience. You’ll need to be friendly and approachable and have a respect for views, values and cultures that are different to your own. Some roles may require you to have a basic IT skills, be a good listener, or have good written skills. We can provide you with more information about this.

 

By volunteering with Citizens Advice Wokingham you will:

  • make a real difference to people’s lives and have a positive impact on your community
  • learn about a range of issues that affect our clients including benefits and debt
  • build on valuable skills such as communication and problem solving
  • meet new people from a range of backgrounds and build friendships in our team
