Volunteer with us

Volunteers are the heart of Citizens Advice Teignbridge, giving quality advice and support to thousands of clients each year. We couldn’t do what we do without them. We recruit and train new volunteers several times a year and have all sorts of roles available. We try to make volunteering rewarding and enjoyable for everyone, developing your skills and supporting you as you learn. We encourage volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds to get involved.

You can read some volunteer stories, or even take a quiz to find out which of our roles might be best for you. Some of our volunteers are client-facing and directly involved in giving advice, and some support our work in other ways. Some advisers do triage, some are generalists covering all areas, and some develop their skills in a specialist area, like benefit appeals or debt advice. Find out more about what our volunteers do.
