How you can make a difference
Volunteering with us provides an opportunity to learn more about your community, while supporting us to influence better outcomes for local residents.
Whether helping to run our engagement events, workshops and outreach stalls, representing Healthwatch at meetings and events, or joining us in our important ‘Enter and View’ visits to local health and social care services, our volunteers bring different skills and perspectives to all that we do.
As well as supporting us to find out more about how local services are working, our volunteers also play an important part in promoting Healthwatch and the work that we do to provide information, advice and signposting guidance to residents.
Volunteering with Healthwatch Southwark has helped me to gain experience in the area I want to work in (Public Health), engage with health-related issues in my local area which I care about, and learn new skills, such as interviewing people.
We are currently looking for Engagement Volunteers!
Would you like to gain some new skills and insights, learn more about the community you live in, and help improve health and care services?
Representing Healthwatch Southwark at a mental health and wellbeing event gave me the opportunity to meet and interact with service users and professionals from different organisations in the borough.
