Volunteers Week, 1st-7th June 2020
This week, we're celebrating #VolunteersWeek, in recognition
of the exceptional work of our 112 hard-working and resourceful volunteers who support people in Oxford to find a way forward.

But why do they so willingly offer up their spare time? Frank, a regular volunteer at Citizens Advice Oxford, gives us his insight.

“No matter where you choose to volunteer your time and energy, there always seems to be a moment of pause, when you stop and think to yourself how thankful you are for all you have compared to most. Perhaps more so now than ever. I'm thankful and also appreciative of the way that Citizens Advice seems to me to satisfy all the criteria for an effective voluntary organisation for those having to struggle with some of the cruel realities of today:
• showing honest and genuine appreciation for the work of its volunteers;
• building a real sense of community amongst its volunteers—all of whom actively support each other;
• equipping its volunteers properly and providing excellent expert support;
• respecting our time so as not to overload us;
• most importantly, devoting time, energy and expertise to ensuring that there is real impact from our work and that the reasons for the problems that clients present are addressed through quality research, built on exhaustive data and vigorous campaigning; and
• recognising that volunteers must not supplant the services that professional agencies should be properly resourced to provide.
We are confident as volunteers that we make a positive difference—so thank you Citizens Advice.”
Frank, Volunteer

Rather, it is we who are thankful to Frank, and all our volunteers and trustees, without whom we would not be able to help more than 6,000 people in Oxford each year.
