It’s Volunteers’ Week 2019!
This year is our 80th anniversary as the service was started on 4 September 1939 – the day after the beginning of World War II.
As part of Volunteers’ Week, which runs from 1 June to 7 June, Citizens Advice Westminster wants to thank all its current volunteers for their contribution and to welcome our new recruits, to help take the charity into its next 80 years.
Volunteers at Citizens Advice Westminster help us in roles such as giving our clients information and advice, raising funds to keep the service running smoothly, and helping with the strategic direction of the organisation. The volunteers come from a range of different backgrounds and ages to contribute their time and skills to help deliver this important service.
The benefits are many and our volunteers increase their skills and confidence while meeting new people and making a positive difference to people’s lives.
Shirley Springer, Chief Executive, Citizens Advice Westminster, said:
“Our volunteers contribute their time and energy to make a huge difference to people’s lives and help keep our vital services running. If you’d like to help people in your community, and can spare a few hours a week, we’d love to hear from you.
“We are also very grateful and would like to thank our local business supporters who have provided us with vouchers and discounts we can offer our volunteers to thank them and make this week a real celebration. The Paramount Lebanese Kitchen, Marks & Spencers, Leon and Sandro’s sandwich bars are all helping us to recognise the valuable work volunteers do for the benefit of the whole community in Westminster.
“We’re looking for volunteers in our friendly Paddington office. With full training, you’ll gain new skills, meet new people, and make a real difference to our clients by helping them overcome the problems they face.”
