Our advice volunteers form the heart of our service, delivering free impartial advice to local people to help them overcome their problems and move forward with their lives. Our advice volunteers are largely based in our office in Winchester or Wickham and provide advice to people over the phone, in person and by email. All our advice volunteers undergo an intensive training and mentoring period before they start to deliver advice and will receive the full support of our experienced supervisors once they are up and running.

Skills and commitment: You will need a friendly and outgoing manner, have a can-do attitude and be confident using basic IT skills. Other than that, no prior experience is needed as full training will be provided.  You’ll need be able to volunteer at least one day a week (or two half days).

Benefits: Being an advice volunteer is a hugely rewarding role, providing invaluable support to local people who are facing enormous challenges in their lives. No two days are the same and it’s a great way of keeping your mind active.

Our next adviser training programme will start in September 2024. To arrange an informal discussion with a member of our team or to find out more, please email admin@cawinchesterdistrict.org.uk

“Becoming a volunteer adviser has been an amazing experience. Although it can be challenging at times, I feel like I’m really making a difference to the lives of local people, some of who are in incredibly desperate situations” Tina, Volunteer Adviser
