POWYS CAB VOLUNTEER NEWS

Successful volunteer workshop!

On Thurs 19 February 2015 Powys CAB held its first volunteer introduction workshop.

We were very happy with the response to the advertising. The workshop was really enjoyed by us and the 7 potential volunteers who came along to find out what we do. They were enthused about the work of Citizens Advice, especially learning about our campaign work and the results our advice can bring for clients.

We would like to give a huge thanks to the 3 current volunteers from our Newtown office who gave up a morning to help. Jane and Elen were invaluable in helping to set up the room and IT, and David used his years of experience to give a very inspiring view of being a volunteer adviser.

Anyone who would  like to enquire about being a volunteer for Powys CAB can call us on 01686 628963. We are happy to discuss volunteering any time.

Or check here for details of the next volunteer workshop – no date as yet.


Good Neighbours Stop Rogue Traders

Are you a good neighbour? Do you want to protect vulnerable residents from rogue traders?

Signs an unwanted doorstep caller is visiting a neighbour:

  • Traders have been cold calling in the area.
  • A builder's van is parked nearby, particularly one that doesn't include a company name or contact details.
  • Building or maintenance work on your neighbour's garden or house starts unexpectedly.
  • Poor quality work is visible on the roof, driveway or property.
  • Your neighbour appears anxious or distressed.
  • Your neighbour visits the bank more frequently, particularly if they are accompanied by a trader.
