What difference will you make?

We are about to enter a new phase of strategic development; with our local authority core funding newly secured for two/three years ahead via a competitive commissioning process, new and innovative funded projects; including our award-winning www.workoutyourmoney.org.uk project, a strong management team and a major opportunity currently being explored for a brand new advice centre, hopefully open in time to support a struggling community as it comes out of the Covid-19 lockdown.

What's in it for the volunteer?

Our Trustee Board is well organised, highly skilled and strategy focussed. We currently have eight long serving Trustees and our Chair of Trustees is planning to step down in the next few months after ten years in the role.

The Trustee Board support Citizens Advice Havant to give people in our local community the knowledge and confidence to find their way forward, whoever they are and whatever their position.
