Citizens Advice Westminster provides a safe and supportive environment where our volunteers can learn, grow and develop new skills. As an organisation that takes pride in ongoing learning and development, we offer our volunteers free Level 2 Courses and Qualifications in over 40 subject areas.
Volunteers are trained and supported by our dedicated Volunteer Co-ordinator. If you volunteer with us, you will join a friendly team of fellow volunteers and paid staff who are absolutely committed to our goal: to deliver a high quality, agile service which reflects the issues and needs of Westminster’s communities and puts clients first.
We offer a range of volunteering opportunities and roles for people with the relevant skills and availability.
CAW recruits and trains volunteers in cohorts to build collegiality and maximise success. Roles include Client support, Money and energy champions, Research and campaigns assistant, Gateway assessors, Trainee advisers, and Financial capability assistant. In these key roles you would be supporting us to increase accessibility of information and advice, and to promote our influence through research and campaigning to make a difference to people’s lives in Westminster.
