We can work with you to fit your hours around any caring responsibilities or other needs you may have.

Please give the names and addresses of two people, other than your family, who can tell us about you – e.g. an employer, teacher or someone who knows you well.


Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from volunteering for Central and South Sussex Citizens Advice- much will depend upon the volunteering role you have applied for and the background and circumstances of your offence. Some volunteering posts are subject to a CRB check. If this applies to the post for which you are applying, you will be informed of this.

All offences, other than sexual crimes against a child or vulnerable adult, will be treated on an individual basis taking into account issues such as the risk to the client, the circumstances of the offence (e.g. what it was, is it relevant to the volunteer role, how long ago it was) and the reputation of Central & South Sussex Citizens Advice.

The questions in the following section are not compulsory, and we value the individual contribution of people irrespective of sex or gender, pregnancy/maternity, transgender status, marital/civil partnership status, sexual orientation, age, disability, race, colour, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief.


The Citizens Advice service believes that people are disabled by the barriers society places in their way and not by their own impairments. We believe everyone has a role to play in society and we want the service to benefit from the widest range of talent available.
