Ten great reasons to volunteer
• Make a difference
It can be incredibly rewarding to contribute something non-financial to a cause you care about.
• Boost your confidence
Trying something new and getting out of your comfort zone every now and then can do wonders for your confidence levels.
• Do something interesting
Don't let your spare time trickle away - fill it doing something interesting and challenging.
• Meet new people
Tired of doing the same things with the same group of friends? Widen your circle and horizons by meeting people you might not normally.
• Improve your prospects
Having volunteering on your CV demonstrates that you're someone with initiative and a rounded life. Nearly one third of the volunteers who leave the service each year go on into paid work.
• Get to know your community
Whether you've lived in a town for 20 years or have just moved there as a student, you'll develop a great feel for the people and the place at a CAB.
• Put your talents to use
Use it or lose it! The possibilities are endless.
• Enjoy free training
CAB trainee advisers can gain a national QCF Legal Advice qualification through their training, and other skills like PR, campaigning and administration can be learnt on the job in a supportive environment.
• Gain office-based work experience
Get ahead of the competition for jobs and university places with some real life experience. Law students, for example, can knock 6 months off their training contract by volunteering as an adviser.

Seventy five per cent of the people who work in the Citizens Advice service are volunteers, and we simply wouldn't be here for our clients without them.
