If you are interested you should come along to our next open day. Open Days are held on a variety of days and times and you will be invited to choose the most convenient for you. We usually hold 2-3 per year. You can expect to be with us for 2-3 hours depending on how many questions are asked. During this time you will hear about the history of the CAB, about the CAB service in Kingston and about the role volunteers play in the organisation.

You will also have a chance to have a look around our workplace, examine the training packs we use and to get an idea of how the training programme is organised and delivered. You will be able to ask any questions you may have including questions about which days of the week training occurs on, expenses and other practical matters.
