Citizens Advice Powys is using Volunteers Week (June 1-7) to thank those who dedicate their time to making a difference.

The charity is shining a spotlight on the remarkable contribution of its team of volunteers who give up 90 hours each week to help people find a way forward.

In the last year, Citizens Advice Powys has helped 7,934 of people with 22,718 of problems, from housing and debt issues to benefits and employment rights.  

The charity’s volunteers have played a crucial role in ensuring that local people get the advice and support they need to get on with their lives.

Citizens Advice offers a wide range of voluntary roles – from advisers to administrators and trustees.

Muriel Ryan, County Manager at Citizens Advice Powys said: “Thanks to our amazing volunteers we are able to continue making a huge difference to people’s lives.

“Our volunteers give up their time for free to help people who may be going through problems to get back on their feet. Volunteering also brings its own rewards and is a great way to meet new people and learn new skills.

“If you can spare a few hours each week, we’d love to hear from you.”

Thanks to contribution volunteers play in local Citizens Advice, two out of every three clients have their problem solved and four out of five say the advice received improved their lives.
