Citizens Advice Purbeck wants people to be part of the next 80 years of its history by volunteering with them.


The Citizens Advice service started almost 80 years ago 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 wants to thank current
volunteers for their contribution and welcomes new recruits to help bring the charity into its next 80 years.

The 44 volunteers at Citizens Advice Purbeck contribute approximately 200 hours each week from four
locations and last year helped 1457 people with 6512 problems, such as debt, housing, benefit and employment issues.

Volunteers at Citizens Advice help us in roles such as giving our clients information and advice, raising funds, keeping the service running smoothly, and helping with the strategic direction of the organisation.

Volunteers at Citizens Advice come from a range of backgrounds and ages to contribute their time and skills to help deliver this important service. 

The benefits are many and our volunteers increase skills and confidence while meeting new people and making a positive difference to people’s lives.

Helen Goldsack at Citizens Advice Purbeck said:
“Our volunteers contribute their time and energy to make a huge difference to people’s lives and help keep our vital service 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.”
