For more info contact Gerda on gbt58@btinternet.com.

Jan 12th – Twinning social evening – we are holding an informal drop in meeting in the Lady Kaye room where you will be able to see the gifts we brought back from our trip to Saint-Savin and learn more about twinning in general – and join us in a glass of wine or soft drink.

Jan 21st – Burns’ Night . This is a return of the HWTA version of Burns’ Night together with the Brownies. This is an unashamed fund raiser. Tickets are £25 (same price as 2020 even though costs have risen). Traditional haggis supper is included as are all drinks. Dancing will be lead by Jonathan and Sharon Glen.

Citizens Advice Hart need your help!


Would you like to help people find a way forward and make a real difference in their lives?

At Citizens Advice Hart, we are looking for volunteers to provide vital support in the community.

We are a small independent charity offering free, impartial, independent, confidential advice and support to anyone who needs it. We help anyone living in the Hart district.

Our charity supported nearly 3000 clients in Hart last year to help resolve over 7500 issues with advice from trained advisors. The rising cost of living and energy crisis is pushing many more of our community into debt and more families are struggling to make ends meet.

At Citizens Advice Hart we are looking for volunteers from all kinds of backgrounds to support local people with their problems. Issues might include debt, housing, benefits, employment problems, consumer issues, and relationship breakdown.

We ask for a minimum of 6-8 hours each week which can be done flexibly either in our local Fleet office or from home.

Volunteers can be trained to offer advice to people in person, online, or over the phone. No experience is necessary as full training will be provided.

We are also in need of volunteers with expertise such as admin, IT, social media, marketing, or fundraising skills as well as trustees.

Citizens Advice volunteers come from all walks of life and choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. They include students; people getting back into work after career breaks; people with part-time jobs; carers; and people who have retired.

You may be looking for new ways to gain valuable experience and enhance your skills or enjoy the opportunity to work with and meet different people. We guarantee you will find it rewarding.

Our wonderful volunteers are the heart of our service – the work we do to support people in the community simply would not be possible without them.

In a recent people survey, 100% of the volunteers said they would recommend volunteering at Citizens Advice Hart. Here are some of the reasons why:

“Seeing people come in with the weight of the world on their shoulders and leaving with a smile on their face.”

“Helping people who often have no other source of support.”

“Everyone is really supportive of each other.”

“The positive feeling of being in a team.”

“Before I ever worked for Citizens Advice, I was a client and I have never forgotten the help and support I received in a difficult time and I was listened to, supported.”

It’s a challenging but highly rewarding role. If you’re keen to do something that really makes a difference, we’d love to hear from you.

To find out more about becoming a volunteer, visit our website www.citizensadvicehart.org.uk or contact Sam Mabbott, Chief Officer, ceo@citizensadvicehart.org.uk
