The Citizens Advice Bureau has announced plans to expand.
Maidenhead Citizens Advice Bureau chief executive Chris O'Hare revealed the plans at the CAB's annual meeting on October 23.
Royal Borough councillor Derek Wilson (Con, Oldfield) handed over his chair of trustees role to Mike Churchman.
Mr Churchman, who worked in advertising, said: "We see the year ahead as full of opportunities for Citizens Advice to expand its services and increase access to them.
"All of this is only possible because we have such dedicated volunteers and staff. I would urge anyone who would like to help the local community to consider joining us as a volunteer: you would find the work stimulating and emotionally rewarding."
The Citizens Advice service is based in Marlow Road, Maidenhead.
It offers free advice on topics including debt, benefits, housing, legal, discrimination, employment, and immigration.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
