Angus Citizens Advice Bureau is looking for local people to help run its service as advisers based in local offices and its proposed outreach service. 

The bureau has three offices, in Forfar, Arbroath and Montrose.

A spokesperson said: “We are proud to play a vital role in the Angus community – and be part of the Citizens Advice Service which is starting a year of celebrations to acknowledge the 75 years it has served communities across Scotland.  

“We are appealing to Angus people to join our team and help us provide this vital service to our community. There will be recruitment information drop-ins in Forfar and Montrose CABs on Wednesday, October 15 between 1pm and 3pm.”

Following these sessions there will be group training days on Tuesday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Tuesday October 28, November 4, 11, and 18 at the Arbroath CAB, thereafter bureau practice will continue in the volunteers’ nearest office which in Forfar is at 19 Queen Street.

The spokesperson added: “You don’t need to have any prior experience or qualifications; we want a mix of people – different ages and backgrounds. We just need volunteers to give six hours of their time a week. So, if you’ve ever wanted to volunteer, now is the time to do it.”
