    There comes a time for all of us when we face problems that are too stressful or complicated to sort out alone.

    Last year – one of the most difficult - our 90 advisers advised 9,000 clients on over 20,000 problems. We helped four in five resolve their debt, benefits, employment and housing difficulties. Many of these were linked to the Covid-19 crisis. We now need more advisers as we move into the pandemic recovery phase.

    Our main offices are in Abingdon, Didcot, Henley and Thame. Since March 2020 our volunteers and staff have been advising the public from home on our Adviceline service. Recently we partially re-opened our offices, in part to train new advisers. Some of the training is online, and some takes place at advice centres.

    What will you get out of it? You will join a friendly team, meet new people, develop your skills and make a real difference to people’s lives. You’ll need to have good listening and interpersonal skills, a willingness to learn and be confident with computers. Full training will be provided.

    We welcome applications from all sections of the community and are committed to equality and diversity. If you have eight hours a week to spare for the next two years or more and are looking for a satisfying and stimulating volunteer role in your local community, please contact us at: www.citizensadvice.org.uk/local/oxfordshire-south-vale/volunteer/

    Could you be a local representative for the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity in Thame? We are seeking a team to be our eyes and ears, and feet on the ground in your community, letting us know of any new fundraising opportunities, collecting green tubs, putting up posters and just generally making as many people as possible aware of the work Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity does. The volunteers will be key in helping the Charity raise much needed funds to run the Florence Nightingale Hospice Services.

    Amy, our Community Events Fundraiser says, 'We really appreciate all the support, we get from the local communities, and it is really important for us to be aware of what is going on in the local areas and all the different fundraising events that are taking place.'

    If you have a friendly and professional manner, are happy on the telephone and have your own transport and you think this sounds like something you'd enjoy doing to help the Charity, please get in touch via volunteering@fnhospice.org.uk or call our Volunteering Team on 01296 429975.

    Our recently rebuilt and very modern and fresh HQ is at Southern Road and our units - Rainbows through to Rangers- are run primarily in there. However we also take our members out and about too.

    Additional Information:

    Plenty of roles in Girlguiding.
    Here in Thame we are heavily involved in the community, and we would love to have all types of people to help out with us fundraising and being involved in the Carnival, Music In the Park, and with our trips out.

    A few of our popular options are listed here.

    Help out on a parent rota - by offering a helping hand at a few meetings per year, you can support your daughter's leaders and experience the fun of guiding.

    Help with administration - you could get involved with anything from planning events and camps to managing finances and helping with fundraising.

    Share a specific skill - whatever you're great at - from football coaching to yoga teaching, graphic design to engineering - you could help inspire girls to try something new.

    Become an occasional helper - you'll assist in running groups on an ad-hoc basis. You will be supported by other volunteers to assist in delivering activities, trips and adventures for girls.

    Become a leader - if you'd like to support a group more regularly there are lots of opportunities to get involved.

    Working alongside other volunteers, you'll be supported with learning and development opportunities and will make a huge difference in your local community.

    There is more information on www.girlguiding.org.uk about volunteering with us as a whole organisation

    Thame Scout Hut, Southern Rd, Thame OX9 2DZ

    Additional Information:

    This is an exciting opportunity to help your local Scout Group. You can decide how much or little time you wish to give.

    There are four age ranges (sections) where you can volunteer:

    Beaver Scouts 6 - 8 years/ Cub Scouts 8 - 10.5 years/ Scouts 10.5 - 14 years

    As part of a leadership team you will help plan, organise and deliver a balanced programme of activities, events and experiences, based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, skills and world. In each section a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including: leadership, teamwork and personal development.

    Why volunteer?
    - you'll have fun and feel rewarded
    - you'll learn new skills
    - you'll make new friends
    - you'll add to your CV and have the opportunity to gain qualifications
    - you'll make a difference and give something back to your community.

    Love camping, walking, being outdoors and inspiring young people? If you enjoy being part of a team then this is the perfect match for you. Prior experience or a connection with Scouting is not necessary and we welcome people from all backgrounds. Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

    Different sections meet on different days of the week (evenings) during school term time and occasionally at weekends for other events and activities. You can choose which day you help on and how often (once a term, month, or weekly if you wish).

    Venue Address:

    Thame Scout Hut, Southern Road, Thame, OX9 2DZ

    Additional Information:

    Scouting relies on strong leadership. So if you can motivate others, keep a cool head and balance a variety of views then you would be an ideal chairperson for Thame Scout Group . With experience of steering meetings to produce excellent decisions, you’ll be equally willing to speak your mind as encouraging others to express their views.
    You will use your strong communication skills to help a team of committed adult volunteers who make up a Executive Committee arrive at good decision that will benefit young people. Able to work as part of a team, you will also contribute the direction and development of the Group.
    No previous experience of Scouting is necessary. What’s more important is your own skills and experience as well as empathy with our mission and values. We will provide all appropriate training and ongoing support.
