Welcome to Citizens Advice

Citizens Advice Leiston, Saxmundham & District is an independent charitable organisation that helps people resolve their problems by providing information and advice.

It is part of the national Citizens Advice organisation which aims to:

  • Provide the advice people need for the problems they face.
  • Influence policymakers to improve the policies and practices that affect people’s lives.

Our service is open to anyone: it is free, independent, confidential and impartial.

Help us to continue our outreach services and maintain our current standard of service

Volunteer For Us

As a Citizen Advice volunteer you don’t need any particular qualifications or experience as we have our own comprehensive accredited training programme that will give you all the skills you need to deliver a high quality service to our clients.

You won’t be left alone after you have trained as there will always be experienced advisers and supervisors to offer regular feedback, support and assessment to enable you to work effectively in your role.

As well as training as an Adviser we also need volunteers to help with Admin or to serve on our Trustee Board.

Our volunteers benefit from their experience of working with us. Retired volunteers believe it keeps them mentally active and nine in ten unemployed volunteers say it helps them move into employment or education.

Our volunteers all come from different backgrounds and welcome new people, if you would like to join our friendly team please contact us using the link below.
