What our volunteers say

Here’s what some of our volunteers have said about their experience with Hamilton CAB;

“I am currently completing my training to become an adviser. I am really enjoying it and the experience has been very beneficial to me. The training I have received has helped to build my confidence and I am gaining knowledge on a wide range of issues. Volunteering with Hamilton CAB is one of the best things I have done, I have taken more from this experience than anything else I have undertaken”

I had to retire early from my career and volunteering with CAB has allowed me to use the skills I developed during my time spent working.

Volunteering with CAB has allowed me the opportunity to continue on my lifelong journey of learning.”
