Citizens Advice Havant is an independent registered charity, relying on your support. We know that local people turn to us in times of crisis. Last year we helped 4325 people with 10,293 different problems. Can you help us continue to support the local communities around the Borough of Havant? There are a variety of ways you can help us, some at no cost to you.
You may feel able to donate money to us. Thank you - we really appreciate all your donations, big or small. You can donate at any local Citizens Advice or Outreach or use our Virgin Money Giving Page where you can make your donation even bigger if you are a tax-payer by adding Gift Aid to your donation.

You may have the skills, knowledge and experience to volunteer with us. Giving your time is a great way to help. Our volunteers mean we can do so much more locally than if we only had paid staff.

Would you like to be part of a supportive team, learn new skills and feel you have really done something worthwhile in your local community? If your answer is ‘yes’, there may be a role for you at Citizens Advice Havant.
Whether it's a paid role you're looking for or a volunteering role we are always looking for help.

Some of the volunteering roles we have to offer are:
Receptionist / Administrator - we are always looking for people with good administration and people skills to work with clients and behind the scenes making our local Citizens Advice an efficient service. Our Advisers often start in an admin role to get to know the way we work. Here's our Customer service volunteer role description
Adviser - initial training starts you off as an Initial Assessor - that takes about 6 weeks training and then you can carry on to do the full adviser training over about 12 - 18 months while still taking an active role with clients. Here are the role descriptions for Initial Assessor and Adviser
Research and Campaigns - if you feel strongly about our campaign issues then we would love you to join us to help gather evidence, and take an active part promoting our campaigns out and about in the community and on Social Media. Here's our Research and Campaigns role description
