Citizens Advice Westminster provides a safe and supportive environment where our volunteers can learn and develop and we ask for a minimum volunteering commitment of 9-12 months. We appreciate the commitment and dedication from Volunteers to our clients, and we like to reward them for their efforts by participating in the local time credits scheme.
We offer a range of volunteering opportunities and roles for people with the relevant skills and availability.
