Why volunteer with us?
Help people in your community have their say on health and social care
Our volunteers play a vital role speaking to local people about their experiences and giving them opportunities to share their views and ideas for how services can improve.
Many of our volunteers spend time in our community finding out what people think of local services and raising awareness of Healthwatch.
What can I do as a volunteer?
Our volunteers help us in a number of ways.
Whether you have an hour to spare or you're looking for a more regular commitment, there are a range of ways you can get involved.
We train some of our volunteers to visit health and social care services and report on people's experiences. You might be observing the service, gathering the views of patients, residents and staff, and contributing to reports which highlight your findings.
As a volunteer, you could be attending community events to raise awareness of Healthwatch and encourage people to share their feedback on health and social care in our community.
Why do I volunteer?
I wanted to give back to the NHS health service that has done so much for my family and Healthwatch gave me that opportunity...
