Be part of the next 80 years of volunteering at Citizens Advice North Tyneside
North Tyneside Citizens Advice wants people to be part of the next 80 years of its history by volunteering with them.
The Citizens Advice service started almost 80 years ago on 4 September 1939 – the day after the beginning of World War II.
As part of Volunteers’ Week, which runs from 1 June to 7 June, North Tyneside Citizens Advice wants to thank current volunteers for their contribution and welcome new recruits to help bring the charity into its next 80 years.
The 54 volunteers at North Tyneside Citizens Advice last year helped 15,078 people with 70,785 problems, such as debt, housing, benefit and employment issues.
Volunteers at Citizens Advice help us in roles such as giving our clients information and advice, raising funds, keeping the service running smoothly, and helping with the strategic direction of the organisation.
Volunteers at Citizens Advice come from a range of backgrounds and ages to contribute their time and skills to help deliver this important service.
The benefits are many and our volunteers increase skills and confidence while meeting new people and making a positive difference to people’s lives.
Mark Almond, Chief Officer at North Tyneside Citizens Advice said:
“Our volunteers contribute their time and energy to make a huge difference to people’s lives and help keep our vital service running. If you’d like to help people in your community, and can spare a few hours a week, we’d love to hear from you.”
