Firstly, thank you for expressing an interest in volunteering with us.
If you’ve come to this page, you probably want to know what we can offer you and why you should apply. Our volunteers are involved in all areas of our work and with your help, we can provide even more support.
Everyone has a different reason for volunteering. For some, it offers a chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the lives of others. For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Regardless of the motivation, our volunteers report that they find it enjoyable, rewarding, challenging and varied.
When you volunteer with us, you will:
- Make a meaningful difference to people in North Ayrshire
- Receive full training for your role and have access to ongoing development
- Have an opportunity to influence our work through our Volunteer Forum
- Meet like-minded volunteers and become part of the North Ayrshire Citizens Advice Service
What our clients say about us
"I want to thank your adviser. His advice was exactly what I needed. He did not raise any false hopes but his advice made the process very clear and highlighted the potential difficult areas we will encounter. He made us feel that our problem was important to him and that he cared which was very comforting. Thank you all for the work that you do"
While your here...
…could you help us out? The citizens of North Ayrshire continue to face challenging conditions; unemployment, financial struggles coupled with the rising everyday cost of living is causing an increase in our service demand with clients presenting complex and interrelated issues.
We are a not for profit charity and are purely focused on the benefits for our clients. We believe everyone should have access to well informed, free advice, whenever they need it but with funding streams across the sector reducing, coupled with increased competition, it is proving difficult for us to ensure we can deliver our vital service. So you can start to see why we need to ask for your help.
Our service provision takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. While we are volunteer led, there are still costs associated with ensuring we provide an accessible service but we do it because we want to provide an outlet that makes a real difference.
If everyone who supports our service and who likes it, helps fund it – our future would be more secure. For as little as £1, you can make a real difference. Giving a little can make a big impact.
