The Benefit of Volunteering


VolunteeringWe are recruiting Trainee Advisers for our next training programme which begins on 8th March 2019. Initially, trainees meet up once a week for a half day training session where we cover interactions with clients including answering a telephone enquiry and interviewing skills. A further half day is spent in one of our two offices - Stroud and Cirencester observing other advisers working with clients. 

After the initial ten week's training, trainees will start to work on the telephone for half a day per week whilst spending the other half day attending training sessions run by our specialist advisers covering key topics such as housing and homelessness, debt, benefits and employment.  This second part of the training programme takes about ten weeks to complete, trainees then continue learning and development by advising for 8-10 hours per week.

If you would like to find out how you could make a difference and hear from volunteers – visit our Volunteering page.

To find out more, please contact our training officer on 01453 758252 ext. 214

Big Energy Saving Week (BESW) - January 2019

Once again we participated in the Big Energy Saving Network campaign. This is a national campaign to help people cut their energy bills and get all the financial support they are entitled to. The week focused on raising awareness of how to save money on energy costs by switching energy supplier or tariff, accessing discounts or grants, and making homes more energy efficient.

Partnership Events took place at Cirencester District Council, Stroud District Council, Stroud Money Forum and Corn Hall, Cirencester.

Goody bags full of useful information were given away during the week at many of our outreach locations.
