Volunteer for Healthwatch Barking and Dagenham


Volunteer for Healthwatch

Barking and Dagenham


The aim of 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. The work of our volunteers will be essential in developing the work of Healthwatch Barking and Dagenham. 

There are a number of different ways in which you can get involved:

Enter and View Representative: These volunteers will be authorised representatives. Their role will be to observe how local health and social care services are being provided. Representatives will need to interact with service users and providers. They will need to identify examples of both good practice and where improvements need to be made. The information will be collated in a report and sent to the service provider for a response.

Outreach Volunteers:  Helping to man information stalls at community events and various health and social care settings. This area consists of a variety of roles including promoting Healthwatch, having stands at events, consulting with people, having a display at health and social care settings. Advising individuals of certain health and social care services, including advocacy services

Office and administration: Researching gaps or “hot topics” in service provision. As part of Healthwatch we will also be undertaking some questionnaires and surveys.  As surveys have been completed volunteers will be needed for data entry, in order to help gather evidence to produce reports.

All volunteers will be given the necessary training, support and expenses!  If you are interested please contact Healthwatch Barking and Dagenham  on 0208 526 8200 or email us Info@healthwatchbarkinganddagenham.co.uk
