Citizens Advice Maidenhead & Windsor 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 ran from 1 June to 7 June, Citizens Advice Maidenhead & Windsor thanked their current volunteers for their contribution with personal messages and a party held at Sportsable.
The 60 volunteers at Citizens Advice Maidenhead & Windsor contribute 354 each week and last year helped 4275 people with 10423 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, IT support, reception, research, campaigning and as trustees setting 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 learn new skills while meeting new people and making a positive difference to people’s lives.
Christine O’Hare Chief Executive at Citizens Advice Maidenhead & Windsor 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.”
