"I hope that by volunteering...I will make a positive contribution to society."

Written by GoVol Herts

Citizens Advice North Hertfordshire (CANH) is an independent local charity and a member of the national Citizens Advice network. Thomas tells us about his experience as a volunteer, and how he used GoVolHerts to find the perfect role.

How did you find your experience of looking for a volunteering role on GoVolHerts?

As I recall, I found the (GoVolHerts) website easy to use. I was pleased to find some voluntary work that I felt I might be able to manage. My confidence is lacking due to my long period of unemployment.

How has your experience at Citizens Advice been so far?

The people at Citizens Advice are very pleasant and welcoming. It is taking me time to adjust since I tend to be most comfortable in my own company. The training has been challenging but I can see that it is very worthwhile… I hope that by volunteering at Citizens Advice I will make a positive contribution to society.
