Find out how to be a Crawley volunteer
Citizens Advice Crawley is holding a free event for people to find out more about volunteering.
A spokesman said: “The team at Citizens Advice Crawley is holding a special event for people to find out about volunteering for the service, and the huge impact you could make to local people.
“They are inviting people to meet volunteers and staff for a presentation, taking place at The Orchard, Brighton Road, on Thursday May 9th, at 10am.
“You will be able to find out what volunteering for Citizens Advice involves, all about training and support, and much more. You can even choose to be interviewed for a role after the presentation.”
Volunteers and staff at Citizens Advice Crawley helped more than 3,200 local people from April 2017 to March 2018. They help people on issues such as universal credit, disability benefits, debt, housing and employment.
Kim Holborn, volunteer recruitment team leader, said: ‘Volunteering for us makes an enormous difference to local people and to the community.
“Our volunteers tell us that, as well as gaining skills and experience, it helps keep them mentally active, and enables them to make some wonderful new friends.
“We’re looking forward to meeting potential volunteers at our event and encourage anyone interested to come along and ask questions!’
