Volunteering with us
Citizens Advice Diss, Thetford and District is an independent local charity and a member of a network of Citizens Advice offices around England and Wales. Most of the work is carried out by highly trained volunteers. Without this support we would not be able to deliver an advice service, as more than two thirds of our workforce is voluntary.
We help a diverse range of people within the community by giving them the information and tools needed to manage their issues, sometimes at a crisis point, helping in areas including debt, housing, benefits, employment, and relationships and can offer legal advice too.
How you can help?
