Money Mentors at Bedworth & Nuneaton CAB
Having recently been appointed to the Breakthrough Project, I joined the Bureau with a representation and advice background and have been with the Bureau for approximately 6 years initially as a volunteer graduating to an employee, advising clients on a wide range of issues during outreach session at various locations, including Doctors Surgeries, Children’s Centres and Community Hubs a role that has and continues to give me immense satisfaction.
I started employment with Citizens Advice in 2008 under the financial inclusion fund I worked as a debt caseworker/adviser for over 12yrs, and have a good knowledge and understanding in all aspects of debt work including insolvency advice. I have been on various other projects mostly around debt, financial capability, budgeting as well as working at various outposts. My current role is a Money Mentor under the Breakthrough Programme I have been on this project for 2.5yrs, I support the participant in moving into Education & Training, Job Searching and gainful employment.
I have been a Money Mentor on the Breakthrough Programme in September 2016, I have had varied roles at the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) since joining them in 2008. Starting off as a volunteer generalist adviser; then moving onto part-time admin staff and then part-time debt adviser eventually taking the role of full-time debt adviser. I have enjoyed my time the CAB, helping clients with their issues which are challenging for them. I work with a great bunch of people, who are always willing to help you.
I have been a Money Mentor on the Breakthrough Programme since September 2016. I have been involved with Citizens Advice for over 20 years, initially working as a volunteer generalist adviser which led on to finding paid employment within the service, working in various roles including debt advice and financial capability, before joining Breakthrough. Working with people in my local community is so rewarding, especially when you see them making achievements and reaching their goals.
