Thank you to our volunteers for making huge difference to people’s lives
We’re celebrating our volunteers who dedicate their time to solving people’s problems and making a difference to their lives.
Volunteers Week, which runs from 1-7 June, is themed ‘volunteering for all’ and we want to highlight the work of our team, which helps people in the community struggling with debt, housing, benefit and employment issues among other issues.
The 70 volunteers at Citizens Advice Shropshire give 486 hours each week and last year helped 7,265 people with 24,196 of problems.
Our volunteers have played a crucial role ensuring people in Shropshire get the advice and support they need to get on with their lives.
Jackie Jeffrey, CEO at Citizens Advice Shropshire said:
“Our volunteers make a huge difference to people’s lives.
“They give up their free time to help people in their community, who may be going through problems, to get back on their feet.
“Volunteering is for everybody and it brings its own rewards. It’s a great way to meet people and learn skills.
“If you’d like to help people in your area and can spare a few hours, we’d love to hear from you.”
