Volunteer for North Tyneside Citizens Advice
North Tyneside Citizens Advice is calling for volunteers of all backgrounds to deliver advice and support to local people.
The charity is launching an appeal for new recruits who can give their time to help people struggling with housing, benefits and employment issues.
Last year the charity supported 18,296 of people in North Tyneside. It can only do this work thanks to its 67- strong team of volunteers.
The charity says no experience is necessary as full training will be provided.
North Tyneside Citizens Advice volunteers come from all walks of life and choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. They include students; people getting back into work after career breaks; people with part-time jobs; carers; and people who have retired.
Volunteers are often looking for new ways to gain valuable experience and enhance their skills, or to enjoy the opportunity to work with and meet different people.
Mark Almond, Chief Officer at North Tyneside Citizens Advice said:
“We’re urging people to do something great this year and volunteer with North Tyneside Citizens Advice.
“As well as doing something positive for the local community, we know people who give their time get a lot back, be it enjoying the camaraderie of working in a team, learning new skills or campaigning on issues that are important to them.
“We’ll give you all the training you need and would love to hear from you.”
