Citizens Advice Charnwood has continued giving advice to those in need throughout the coronavirus pandemic thanks to the tireless dedication of its staff and volunteers.
The team quickly rallied to ensure as many people as possible could be helped as services saw unprecedented demand. Often this has meant a shift to providing support via phone and limited appointments.
As part of Volunteers' Week, which runs from 1 to 7 June, Citizens Advice Charnwood wants to thank volunteers for their exceptional contribution to the service and local community.
44 volunteers at Citizens Advice Charnwood contribute 264 hours each week.
In the last year, Citizens Advice Charnwood has helped3,640 people withproblems such as debt, housing, benefit and employment issues.
