Citizens Advice Bureau Nelson Tasman

Do you have Common Sense, Some Life Experience, and enjoy a bit of Detective Work?
The friendly group at CAB Nelson Tasman will help you build your people skills, learn how to access information and resources and develop an increased understanding of your community.
Training for new volunteers begins late February 2014.

Tucked behind the Palms Motel at 9 Paru Paru Road is a
small cottage with a big heart.

It’s the home of Nelson Tasman Citizens Advice Bureau,
where about forty well trained volunteers happily help anyone who has a
question.

They know about your rights when flatting, employment
issues, what to do about noisy neighbours, how to contact Morris dancers, what
to do with surplus knitting wool and heaps more.

CAB has a huge variety of resources, so you’ll usually
get several suggestions.

Some lesser known services include reading and
explaining complicated documents, helping draft letters of complaint, or
helping people fill in forms. Every shift is different!

Obviously, to provide this professional service,
volunteers must learn how to listen, what questions to ask, and where to look
for answers.

If you
want to build your ‘people skills’, learn how to find information and expand
your knowledge of the community while helping others, apply now for  the   2014 volunteer training course beginning in late
February.

Call into
the bureau at 9 Paru Paru Road, phone on 5482117 or email cab.nelson@xtra.co.nz, for more
detailed information.
