Future Proof Youth Project
Thank you for your donations during the Christmas Challenge.
Together, we raised over £4,500 to fund a specialist Citizens Advice youth adviser including a matching donation of £1200 from the Four Acre Trust (www.fouracretrust.org.uk).
These valuable funds are already being put to work - our youth adviser has established weekly sessions at Wareham Youth Club to help a group of 15-16 year olds develop financial capability. The timetable includes practical sessions on budgeting, dealing with tenancy and home ownership, understanding the cost of living, and more...

"Training as an adviser is a great experience. The skills and experience I have gained have really boosted my confidence and I have made lots of new friends." Sarah - Trainee Adviser
"After training and volunteering as an adviser for a couple of years I was offered paid work. My job is really rewarding, it is great knowing I am doing something which helps people in my community." Steve - Caseworker.
"I help Citizens Advice by fundraising. It is a really worthwhile cause and volunteering is great fun. It gets me out of the house, and working as part of a team is really rewarding." Chris - Fundraiser

The stories our clients tell us make us aware of the problems faced by people in our community and all over the UK.
Citizens Advice collects evidence of clients' problems and uses this to campaign for changes in national and local policies and services. We have a key role in speaking up for clients, raising issues brought to us, contributing to public debate and informing legislation.
