All sorts of people volunteer for many different reasons, but one thing that unites them all is that they find it challenging, rewarding and varied. Volunteering provides an opportunity to learn new skills and to develop existing ones.
In any role, you will develop your skills in a number of valuable areas, like communication, IT and dealing with the public, as well as increasing your self-confidence through practical hands-on experience. In addition, CAB adviser training is respected and valued throughout the advice sector.
It is also a chance to put the skills and experience you have to good use helping others. We need people of all ages and backgrounds. For many people, the best thing about volunteering for the CAB is getting to meet a wide range of people and making new friends.
