Advice and Support Volunteer

Are you able to offer some of your time to volunteer as an advice and support volunteer, giving advice and information?

We are a very busy office with volunteers offering free information, help and advice to inform people of their rights and responsibilities.

For our clients, many of whom are vulnerable, have long-term health conditions, are disabled or elderly our help can be life changing.  Every day we tackle homelessness, reduce debt, maximise household income, put food on the table, keep people in their homes, tackle fuel poverty and discrimination.

We help clients get the right help in the fastest time possible.  We assess people's needs, either face-to-face, over the phone, by email or web chat, and identify the most appropriate course of action.

in this role you will explore the client's problem(s) and situation, assess the risk/urgency of the client's issue and their ability to deal with the problem themselves, identify next steps, summarise the interview for the client and maintain the database by completing the gateway assessment screens .

Full training is provided.
