Volunteer with us
Citizens Advice Peterborough depends on volunteers
Citizens Advice Peterborough (CAP) provides a range of volunteering opportunities and welcomes people with the time and interest to learn new skills and practice existing ones. We currently have around 80 volunteers working with us and we recruit new volunteers throughout the year.
CAP seeks to recruit a variety of volunteers from all backgrounds as we value all experiences and skills, including community languages. We are an inclusive service and you can read more about this in our Equality and Diversity policy. New volunteers are expected to attend a face to face induction and commit to a training programme covering all elements of our work before starting to interact with clients.
To find out more about volunteering with CAP, please read our New Volunteer Information pack. You will also find more details about our volunteer opportunities below.
