Volunteering

Volunteers are the key to how we, at Citizens Advice Sandwell & Walsall can help thousands of people solve their problems each year. Our dedicated, well-trained volunteers come from all walks of life and have a desire to help people, whatever the problem and whoever they are. 

Our commitment to valuing diversity and promoting equality means we can encourage individuals who might not otherwise volunteer. Citizens Advice volunteering provides individuals with an opportunity they might not otherwise have had to develop their personal skills and abilities.

Volunteering can be a good way of:

  • Gaining new skills, knowledge and experience

  • Developing existing skills and knowledge

  • Enhancing your CV

  • Improving your employment prospects

  • For some of our other volunteers, volunteering appeals because of its social benefits. These include:

  • Meeting new people and making new friends

  • A chance to socialise

  • Getting to know the local community

All volunteers are fully supported and supervised throughout their involvement with Citizens Advice Sandwell & Walsall.

We make sure that you are not put in situations that are beyond your abilities, and will work with you to help ensure that you find volunteering with us both challenging and rewarding.
