Volunteers and staff at Citizens Advice Crawley helped more than 3,200 local people from April 2017 to March 2018. They help people on issues such as universal credit, disability benefits, debt, housing and employment.

Kim Holborn, volunteer recruitment team leader, said: ‘Volunteering for us makes an enormous difference to local people and to the community.

“Our volunteers tell us that, as well as gaining skills and experience, it helps keep them mentally active, and enables them to make some wonderful new friends.

“We’re looking forward to meeting potential volunteers at our event and encourage anyone interested to come along and ask questions!’
