Citizens Advice Calderdale
Citizens Advice Calderdale need a range of volunteers to help in both support and client facing roles.
In particular need are receptionists / admin staff on Mondays from 9:30am-1:30pm.
As part of Volunteer Week (1-7 June) CAB are holding a Volunteer Open Day at the stall in the Borough Market on Wednesday 6 June, 10:00am-2:00pm so call in and have an informal chat to see how you might enjoy helping.
If you have at least one day a week available and would like to help clients directly then maybe a role as a telephone assessor would be something for you.
If you enjoy research and writing reports then maybe helping with our Research and Campaigns might be something you’d like.
