Volunteer with us

Giving advice

Research and Campaigns


South Hams Citizens Advice is a local charity and we rely on fundraising to keep our service running. We're looking for volunteers to help us with fundraising and events. For us, every penny counts. If you think you're able to give us a small amount of your time and could help us with fundraising please get in touch. No experience necessary!


We are always open to anyone with strategic vision, independent judgement and a willingness to give time and commitment to joining our board as a trustee. We are particularly looking for someone with marketing and fundraising experience.

The post of trustee is unpaid but will provide you a great deal of experience and satisfaction. All reasonable expenses are reimbursed. We are particularly keen to achieve a more diverse board of trustees and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

For more information or an informal discussion on the role of trustee, please contact trustees@southhamscab.org.uk. You can find out more about what trustees do on the website of our national organisation here.

What happens next?

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer we will invite you to our office where you can have a look around, meet some of the staff and volunteers and have a chat about what we do and what you would like to do. It really is as simple as that!

What our volunteers have to say

“I really value my time spent helping others with the back up of our fantastic supervisors and managers. I enjoy being part of the team! It has certainly contributed positively to my retirement” Helen, Volunteer
“Thank you for all the training I received. When I first started volunteering I was very nervous, but received great support. It improved my self-confidence no end, especially as I'd been out of a formal working environment for 12 years. Being in the team has been great.” Richard, Volunteer
“I like encouraging people to feel that they can speak about their problems. It's very rewarding to know you have the skills to help someone who might be at their lowest point, and to move their situation forwards so they can start to see the light again.”Jill, Volunteer
“I get a buzz out of volunteering for Citizens Advice because I know the work we do makes a real difference. Volunteering has given me an opportunity to gain a wider social knowledge and valuable people skills. ”Elaine, Volunteer
“I volunteered to give, but realised I actually gained.”Steve, Volunteer
