Volunteer for us and help improve health and care services for local people.

We are looking for volunteers to help us listen to the experiences of local people and understand what care is like for them -- especially those whose voices aren’t always heard. 

As a Healthwatch volunteer, you'll get to meet new people and develop skills and insights into health and care services.

We offer full training and support all backed by our new Investing in Volunteers UK quality standard for good practice in volunteer management. 

Join us as a Community Listener

As a Community Listener volunteer, you'll help find out what the people in your community think about the health and care services they use.

Your experience, skills and enthusiasm will help make sure people have a say on vital services - and that their voices get heard by decision-makers.

We will give you training and support in your volunteer role, as well as paying agreed out of pocket expenses.

I like volunteering because ...

“I like the work with Healthwatch – connecting to other local communities, talking to people and teasing out what’s working well or not. It’s meaningful.

“Passing on people’s feedback gives local services and agencies a wakeup call from time to time.

“I have hearing loss myself and the impact can be incredibly undermining. So, my other volunteering work ties in well, especially with the Sensory Impairment Partnership Board, to improve care services and speak up for people with sight and hearing loss.”

Paul McCloskey, Community Listener and Partnership Board volunteer

“The beauty of volunteering is that you can just do the things you enjoy. Over the last year, I’ve sat on an interview panel, talked to people about their experiences for the leaving hospital report and helped make a video about online meetings.”

Lorraine Lofting, Healthwatch Community Listener Volunteer
