People across South Somerset need our advice
Volunteers are the life force of our organisation and without them we would not be able to deliver the level of service that we offer.
Families across South Somerset are struggling with a range of financial, housing, employment and benefits problems and urgently need advice.
We want to expand our team of volunteer advisers to help even more local people.
With support from the National Lottery Community Fund we have created a Somerset Advice Training Academy that will provide all the support you’ll need to become an adviser.
Our next course will start around September 2021. If you would like to join an Introduction to Volunteering session on the 4th August 2021 at 2.30pm or on the 19th August at 10.00am (via zoom) please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
