Citizens Advice Bedford

This year, Citizens Advice celebrates 80 years of providing free, confidential advice to people in difficulty. Since its inception, the organisation has relied on the help of volunteers to support in the delivery of its services; and over the years, CAB has been able to continuously expand their offerings thanks to those individuals who freely give up their time to help others in need.

In the year 2018-2019, Citizens Advice Bedford managed debt worth £5.6M, generated benefit income for clients worth £2.7M and contributed over £1.7M savings to the government through the reduction in health service demand, local authority homeless services and out-of-work benefits. During this time, the organisation has also undergone many changes and developments to ensure that we will continue striving towards increasing the number of clients that we are able to assist within Bedford Borough.

We re-structured our organisation to ensure the structure is resilient and able to meet the challenges within the sector for the next 5 years. Part of this meant looking at how we recruited volunteers and the resources needed to do so effectively which means we have streamlined the volunteering opportunities that we offer as well as our volunteer recruitment process.
As part of the re-structure, we created a digital space, where people can learn more about volunteering at Citizens Advice Bedford; a volunteer portal, containing detailed explanations of the various roles that we offer, a video showcasing our existing volunteer experiences, an online application form and lots of other information to answer any questions that you may have about what it means to volunteer for CAB.  

We believe that our volunteer portal captures imagination and ambition whilst setting out clear expectations; it makes the application process informative, simple and efficient.
