Celebrating national Volunteers’ Week

National Volunteers’ Week celebrates the amazing contributions volunteers make to communities across the UK

The celebration starts on the first Monday in June every year. It’s a chance to recognise, celebrate and thank the UK’s incredible volunteers for all they contribute to our local communities, the voluntary sector, and society as a whole. Read more

At Citizens Advice South West Surrey, we would also like say a massive thank you to all our wonderful volunteers. With nearly 20,000 volunteers delivering services across our national Citizens Advice network of charities, there are plenty of opportunities to help out.

Here’s what some of our volunteers are saying about volunteering with us:

Client Adviser Volunteer:

“Volunteering provides me with intellectual stimulation and a sense of challenge, whilst giving me the satisfaction of feeling I’ve helped people and been able to give something back to my community.”

Administration Volunteer:

“I wanted to give something back to my community. My skills matched an admin role. This also provided more flexibility.”

Communications Volunteer:

“Alongside generalist advice work, I act as a local office Communications Volunteer. I create and manage content for all our social media platforms. I feel passionate about helping to spread awareness of the work we do and reaching new clients who need our help. I enjoy working for a local Citizens Advice office because our team strives to make a difference in our communities’.”

Research and Campaigns Volunteer:

“I am very aware of the power of evidence to bring about changes, so I make sure that the team are aware of local and national issues where evidence is required to demonstrate the real life effects of policies which are not working effectively.”
