The new chairman of Maidenhead's Citizen's Advice Bureau (CAB) says demand for the service has never been higher.
The town's bureau advises more than 3,000 people a year.
Long-standing Royal Borough councillor Derek Wilson is the new chairman of the Maidenhead branch, taking over from Tony Hill.
Cllr Wilson, who is also a governor of Desborough College and sits on the board of Housing Solutions, said: "I'm very proud of our volunteers who do amazingly valuable work.
"The team members donate an enormous amount of their time in order to provide a free advice service that meets the highest standards."
Maidenhead CAB is holding its annual meeting on November 21 at 4 Marlow Road, Maidenhead, from 6pm.
