Best way to contact Telephone: Deb Withington – Volunteer Coordinator 07736 931108 Email: Facebook: GingerbreadCentre

Volunteering Opportunities Although we can’t have any volunteers on site during the pandemic, we do still need volunteers to help out by raising funds so that we can continue to provide support to local disadvantaged parents and children to help them regain their independence. If you could help with fundraising or have any ideas on how you could support us in other ways, please do get in touch.


Make a real difference

By volunteering you’ll be playing an active part in improving the lives of millions of people and influencing the development of national and local policies and services.

We need you! Seventy seven per cent of the people who work in the Citizens Advice service are volunteers, and we simply wouldn’t be here for our clients without them.

· Boost your confidence

· Do something interesting and challenging.

· Meet new people

· Improve your prospects and put your talents to use

· Get to know your community

· Enjoy free training

· Gain office-based work experience

We pay travel expenses. Some roles are more flexible than others. We’ll do our best to find a role for you that fits in with your interests, and we’ll be as flexible as possible in enabling you to volunteer at the times that suit you best.

Clients as Volunteers

Many of our volunteers were once clients who want to give something back to the service that helped them. Having experience of the service from both sides can be extremely valuable. However, it is Citizens Advice policy not to accept current clients as volunteers as there is a risk of a conflict of interest arising. Please contact us if you would like to discuss this with us. Depending on the type and level of support we provided to you we may suggest taking a little break between being a client and becoming a volunteer. If you are likely to need ongoing advice it may be in your best interest to keep this option open for yourself by not volunteering at this time. If your situation changes we can look at things again.

Coronavirus and Volunteering

Due to the present crisis we are only recruiting volunteers to train as Initial Advisers who will volunteer remotely from home. You will be trained to do email advice first which gives you plenty of time to research the issue, write your advice and get it checked by the Advice Session Supervisor before sending it to the client.Once you are confident with email advice you can progress to phone advice and if you wish to webchat advice.

Full training will be given by a combination of lessons over Microsoft Teams and independent study. An Advice Session Supervisor will always be on duty to consult with via Microsoft Teams or telephone.

You will need a computer and webcam or tablet, a smartphone and internet access. You will need a safe space to work where your screen cannot be overlooked and you cannot be overheard during telephone supervision. If you progress to phone advice you will need a phone with the voicemail turned off.
