Citizens Advice Cornwall provides free, independent and confidential advice on a wide range of subjects for everyone in the community, including benefits, debt, housing, relationship issues, employment and redundancy, consumer, legal issues and more.
Citizens Advice Cornwall is appealing for people to come forward as volunteers to not only help with providing advice and support, but to also help with fundraising and raising awareness.
Like many charities, Citizens Advice Cornwall relies heavily on volunteers to be able to continue its work. As the cost of living and energy crisis deepens, the demand for the charities services across the county is increasing.
Fundraising Ambassadors are needed for a variety of roles including organising and attending fundraising events, talking to groups and organisations, organising collection tins etc. Opportunities are also available for volunteer advisors and administrators.
Last year, Citizens Advice Cornwall helped more than 9,000 people with almost 40,000 issues, write-off debt worth a total of over £1 million and gain income worth more than £8.1 million.
It costs Citizens Advice Cornwall around £1.5m to run the service each year, a figure that is set to rise as the need for help increases. No experience is necessary just a passion for the charity as full training will be given. To find out more about fundraising please email email@example.com.
