CAB needs vol­un­teers

North Harbour News - - NEWS -

The Cit­i­zens Ad­vice Bureau needs more vol­un­teers to help in its 11 Auck­land branches.

The branches pro­vide an in­valu­able ser­vice to the com­mu­nity of­fer­ing free ad­vice, in­for­ma­tion and ad­vo­cacy to more than 165,000 peo­ple ev­ery year.

‘‘Work­ing as a vol­un­teer is a great way to give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity,’’ CAB vol­un­teer Bar­bara Hould­ing says.

Vol­un­teers only need ba­sic com­puter skills, the abil­ity to re­search in­for­ma­tion and, above all, to be able to re­late to peo­ple from all walks of life.

New vol­un­teers are given full train­ing. Af­ter that, all that is needed is a com­mit­ment of four hours a week.

’’What­ever your age or in­ter­est, this is a re­ward­ing way of be­com­ing in­volved in your com­mu­nity,’’ Mrs Hould­ing.

Email caba­cof­fice@xtra.co.nz if you are in­ter­ested.
