We are a local charity dedicated to providing information, support and advice to individuals and families who live, work or study in Merton and Lambeth. We also work to raise awareness and understanding of the challenging issues affecting our clients and communities.
Volunteers help support our services and our work right across the charity. Our amazing team of volunteers help us to achieve much more than we would be able to achieve alone.
You don’t need any specific advice experience for any of our volunteering roles. For most roles you’ll need to be good with people and enthusiastic about helping others, and be 18 or over. Volunteers come from all walks of life, helping us to reflect the needs of the clients we serve and the work we do.
Whatever you do, you’ll be fully trained and supported, you’ll build your skills, experience and confidence, and you will really help people in your community.
You could be part of our telephone service, Adviceline, or helping clients who come to our offices, or supporting us fundraising or as a trustee.
You could be in our Mitcham, Morden or Streatham Hill offices, or in an outreach location in the community.
We bring together training groups for the advertised roles regularly, usually within a few weeks of applying if you are available. We will discuss your availability with you once you have applied.
Our volunteering roles are designed to fit with different interests and availability. If you have a minimum of 3-4 hours to volunteer, at least one day per week, then we would love to hear from you.
