During this 75th anniversary year of Citizens Advice Bureaux in Scotland Dumfries and Galloway Citizens Advice Service has a double celebration as 11 of their new volunteers have completed an intensive training programme to become qualified advisers. The volunteers come from the four bureaux across the region in Annan, Castle Douglas, Dumfries and Stranraer.
Sue Irving, Chief Executive of Dumfries and Galloway Citizens Advice Service said: “This is an amazing achievement as all volunteers have not only completed their shadowing, supported interviews and 30 solo interviews but have engaged in 32 e-learning units and training sessions ranging from Benefits and Debt to Housing and Neighbour Disputes/Anti-Social Behaviour. Congratulations to all of our new volunteers and welcome to the team.”
