The aim of our local Healthwatch Barking and Dagenham is to give our citizens and communities a stronger voice to influence and challenge how health and social care services are provided in the borough.
Healthwatch is keen to recruit volunteers who have an interest in health and social care. People giving time to carry out Healthwatch work in different ways is key to how Healthwatch operates. It's still early days and at the moment we are developing some interesting volunteering opportunities.
We are also looking for local organisations to become Healthwatch Associates.
Volunteer with us
Healthwatch has many volunteering opportunities, some are regular, others short term and some may be for one off events. Volunteers will be recruited through a selection procedure. A full induction and training will be provided for certain activities. Out of pocket expenses will be paid.
