EDCA has seen an increase in demand for its services since lockdown with clients experiencing multiple problems which can have a negative effect on their mental health and well-being.
Mandi Douglas, project lead, East Dorset Citizens Advice, said, “It is more important than ever to be able to provide this support as we have seen how Covid-19 has impacted people’s mental health – not only for people who are experiencing issues for the first time, but also for others who have existing issues.”
The advisers will work remotely and support those seeking help through telephone or an online chatroom. If you would like to volunteer for EDCA, please email email@example.com for more information. No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm and a willingness to learn as full training will be given.
Mandi continues, “We are an independent charity and rely upon grants, donations and fundraising to fund our service so we can help the residents of East Dorset. If you are able to donate, please visit www.eastdorsetca.com.”
EDCA can be contacted on 01202 884738, or visit www.eastdorsetca.com for more information.
