There are a number of ways you can give your support to Perth Citizens Advice Bureau. Last year we offered advice to 4700 clients on a wide range of topics. As a charity we rely on the work of our volunteers and the support we receive to continue to make a difference to people’s lives.
Here are some of the ways you can support us:
Volunteer with us: We have a range of voluntary opportunities. We are holding a volunteering Information Event on Thursday 23rd May at 4pm in advance of our June 2019 training intake. This informal event will give you the opportunity to come in and find out a bit more about what is involved in volunteering with us, as well as meeting some of our staff and volunteers and having a tour of the office. The Information Event will take place in our training room at 7 Atholl Crescent, Perth, PH1 5NG.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in finding our more about volunteering with us or attending our Information Event.
Perth Citizens Advice Bureau simply wouldn’t exist without our volunteers. Volunteers in the bureau work in a range of roles including generalist advisers, support workers, IT support, social policy workers or board members. You don’t need to have qualifications or particular experience to become a volunteer, we are looking for people who are interested in learning how to help. Of course it helps if you are a good listener, have a genuine desire to help others and the ability to understand complex information and explain it to others.
In return, as a volunteer, you will receive full training for your role, with on-going training and support. You will be joining a great team from many different backgrounds but all with one thing in common – the desire to do something which is challenging and very rewarding.
For the June 2019 training intake we are focussing on Benefit Support Worker (BSW) and Outcome Support Worker (OSW) training with some places available for Project Support Workers (PSW). We plan to start the training on Tuesday 25th June (for BSW training) and Friday 28th June (for OSW and PSW training). See the job descriptions below for more details.
