Volunteers have always been at the heart of CHAT and are a vital part of the team.
Whether you are looking to gain experience before going off to university or starting a new job, looking for a new challenge or wanting to be part of a friendly team that makes a difference in the local community we would love to hear from you. Some of the roles need a regular commitment, and others are on a casual basis – we can provide training and will support you all the way!

If you want to help people with their debt and money worries we can provide the training and tools to help you do that.
You will be part of a team working with clients, offering quality debt and budgeting advice.
We understand that sometimes situations change but due to the cost of training and the amount of time needed to be proficient at the role we ask for a minimum commitment of approximately 6 hours a week for a year.
CHAT is pleased to have achieved the Investing in Volunteers (IiV) quality standard for good practice in volunteer management.
CHAT is committed to valuing diversity and promoting equality. Our policy is to strive to ensure that no applicant, employee or volunteer receives less favourable treatment than another on grounds of age, disability, ethnic origin, marital or parental status, political belief, religion, gender or sexual orientation. We encourage applications from those with lived experience.
We are committed to using a safer recruitment process and the Disclosure & Barring Service to ensure we, as an employer, safeguard those we serve.
Helen is our Volunteer Co-ordinator.
We want to see volunteers thrive at CHAT and Helen (along with the rest of the team) make it
their mission to see you fulfilled while helping us to help others.
“Volunteers bring so much to the work of CHAT – not least their unique skills and experiences which contribute to this diverse team. I love working alongside this great group of people who are united by their desire to help their local community – it can be hard work but it is also very rewarding. Take a look at the Role Descriptions and if volunteering with CHAT sounds like something that might be a good fit for you, why not get in touch and we can then we can take it from there!”
