Citizens Advice Peterborough thanks its volunteers for their tireless support
Citizens Advice Peterborough has continued giving advice to those in need throughout the coronavirus pandemic thanks to the tireless dedication of its staff and volunteers.
The team quickly rallied to ensure as many people as possible could be helped as services saw unprecedented demand. Often this has meant a shift to providing support via phone and web chat.
As part of Volunteers’ Week, which runs from 1 to 7 June, Citizens Advice Peterborough wants to thank volunteers for their exceptional contribution to the service and local community. Our dedicated team of volunteers contribute their time, skills and experience to support our advice service and the local people we support. In the last year, Citizens Advice Peterborough has helped more than 5,000 people with nearly 14,000 problems, such as debt, housing, benefit and employment issues.
Helen Jones, Volunteer Development Manager at Citizens Advice Peterborough said:
“Our wonderful team of volunteers dedicate their time and skills to ensure that people in Peterborough can get support in their time of need.
“I’m particularly proud of the immense dedication they’ve shown during this pandemic – with many working from living rooms and kitchens to keep the service running.
“Their dedication and commitment knows no bounds. We simply couldn’t do it without them.”
