When CARBS volunteers help clients find a way forward, their support is often priceless. But looking at time donated in financial terms can help us understand this generosity more clearly.
In 2018-19 our volunteers gave over 14,300 hours to the charity.
Valuing this time at a modest £20 per hour (the professional skills and knowledge of our 58 advisers is almost certainly worth more), their donation was worth over £287,000.
CARBS Chief Executive, Andrea Dunhill, said:
“The remarkable commitment and generosity of Citizens Advice volunteers always amazes me. Without this gift of time we couldn’t have helped the more than 3,300 clients who asked us in 2018/19.”
