The Venus Centre Seeks Money Mentor Volunteers

A Bootle-based charity is looking for volunteers to help local people discover solutions to their money issues and concerns. The role is all about empowering the people they support to manage debt, budgeting, access benefits and access funds that may be available to them and energy efficiency advice.

Venus works with local women and families in a variety of ways, and the organization is excited to launch a new project which focusses on money management.

Money Mentor Volunteers will support a weekly drop-in at Venus’ centre on Linacre Lane, as well as providing advice and support over the phone.

Issues with money can create huge barriers for families, restricting access to opportunities that impact on education, health and wellbeing.

Money is a very sensitive subject for many of us, so volunteers will need to be friendly and approachable with a non-judgemental attitude. No previous experience is needed, as full training will be provided.

Volunteers will receive ongoing supported from a project coordinator and along with  training in areas such as listening skills and budget coaching. There may also be further training opportunities over the course of your volunteering.

The role will provide volunteers with the opportunity to develop their skills in advice and guidance, while making a very real difference to the lives of the people they work with.

To apply to become a Money Mentor volunteer, or for more information on the role, contact Jo Hughes, Financial Resilience Worker, by emailing jo.hughes@venuscharity.org
