At Cambridge & District Citizens Advice we rely on a team consisting around 100 experienced volunteers and 20 paid staff.

Many of our volunteers have worked with us for a number of years. All volunteers receive training and our advisers train for 18 months. However not all volunteers become advisers. Some become receptionist, administrators, IT or media workers. Our Board of trustees are also volunteers.

Together we are able to provide those who live or work in Cambridge City or South Cambridgeshire with vital advice and information services.
