At Citizens Advice Reigate & Banstead this Volunteers Week we’re keen to showcase the extraordinary contribution of our volunteer advisers.
In our May Newsletter CARBS CEO Andrea Dunhill said:
“We can report an amazing year in 2018-19. We helped 3,350 clients find a way forward with more than 11,400 problems. It’s testament to the dedication of our staff and volunteers that we achieved this despite Redhill being closed for 3 weeks in April 2018.”
Three years ago to the day* we asked everyone on the team why they volunteered with Citizens Advice. Our Training Manager Helen summed up the findings: “We know our volunteers gain a lot personally but the main satisfaction is in helping others.”
And nothing… has… changed.
