Our current Treasurer says ‘I’ve really enjoyed my decade of as Treasurer of CA North Dorset and, post-merger, as Treasurer of CACD. Getting to know our volunteers and the fantastic work they do has been inspirational. The Treasurer role is supported by a highly competent Finance Manager so it is not ‘hands on’ and you will work equally closely with our excellent Chief Officer. If you are looking for a worthwhile violuntary role with a well-run and sustainable local charity, this is the job for you !’

In Dorset CACD in 2021 we helped clients find a solution to a problem related to one or several of the following: Benefits, employment, energy costs, debt, gambling, housing and social issues, MS, living with cancer, and mental health.

We provide free independent advice to people throughout Dorset and are a locally managed business within the highly regarded National Citizens Advice Network. Though it is not widely understood, we are an independent charity who are professionally run but very much volunteer led.

Citizens Advice prides itself in providing end to end highly professional advice and is an organisation with a reputation we are all proud to be part of.
