The people of Oldham and Rochdale need YOU!
The Citizens Advice service provides free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to everyone on their rights and responsibilities. We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination.
As a Volunteer, you will play a central role in tackling injustice, reducing poverty and social exclusion, and enabling people to realise their full potential.

- Adviser roles give more in-depth advice and support on the options available to people with more complex problems and the kind of action they can take.
All our roles make a real difference to the lives of local people!
