THE CITIZEN’S Advice Bureau is urging residents from Bromsgrove and Redditch with some extra time to volunteer to help their community.

The invaluable service, which offers free, confidential information and advice on money, legal, consumer and other issues, is calling for volunteers to help in a number of roles.

With positions available at the office on Birmingham Road in Bromsgrove and Redditch’s Town Hall, volunteers will answer phones, do administrative work and interact with the public face-to-face.

Bromsgrove and Redditch’s CAB business manager Sarah Yates, said: “We are constantly looking for volunteers for different roles and have people come in to help who range from students to retirees.

“Our volunteers will be fully trained and will be helping the community by dealing with quite vulnerable people with a range of different issues.

“They will gain valuable knowledge and skills which can be used in future employment.

“Many of our current volunteers tell us helping their local community is one of the most rewarding things they have done.”

She added the service was looking for people who had spare time on a long-term basis and said full training would be given.

“Some of the people we have with us are retired while others are young parents.

“We are currently looking for diversity and like to have a lot of people from different backgrounds so it doesn’t matter what your background is or previous job was,” said Sarah.
