At the beginning of 1998, LITRG called for volunteers to help fulfil our mission and was gratified by the response. The current members of LITRG are set out below. You can find out more about volunteering for LITRG on our Becoming a volunteer page.
If you are looking for a more ‘hands on’ volunteering experience, directly helping the public with tax queries then you may want to have a look at the TaxAid or Tax Help for Older People websites for their current volunteering opportunities. Responsibilities range from attending helpline sessions or home visits to taking on pro-bono cases.
