NEW trustees are needed to oversee the vital work of the Citizens Advice Bureau in South Gloucestershire.

The CAB provides free and confidential advice to people from its main premises in Yate, at other offices around the district and over the phone. It also campaigns to improve policies and practices that affect people’s lives.

Its work is governed by a board of trustees, whose members are responsible for ensuring the service complies with national standards, charity legislation and company law.

The bureau is currently looking to appoint new trustees to strengthen the board and replace members who are planning to move on.

Trustee chairman John Sellers said: “Ideal applicants will be thoughtful people who care about our community and can quickly get the idea that our work has a valuable impact on its social and economic wellbeing.”
