Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do
From talking to people about their experiences of health and social care, to writing reports, to updating our social media - volunteers are vital to our work. Whether you have a few hours to spare or are looking for a regular commitment, we've got a volunteering role to suit you.
Current volunteering opportunities
Take a look at our current volunteering opportunities:
Healthwatch services have a statutory function to carry out Enter & View visits to health and care services to review services at the point of delivery. This involves visiting with a team of representatives to observe the service, view the premises and talk to both staff, patients/residents, carers and relatives. If you have observational skills coupled with a desire to improve the quality of services, then this role may be for you.
Advisory Committee Members
We are looking for people with local knowledge, experience and passion for promoting better health and social care to join our committee. The committee represents an advisory body overseeing strategic direction and monitoring the progress of Healthwatch Hounslow. Please find below the full role description and instructions on how to apply.
Community Engagement Volunteers
Do you like listening to people's stories? Are you passionate about the voice of the local communities and believe in equality? If so, this role could be for you. As part of our Patient Experience Programme, Healthwatch Hounslow visits local services to speak to patients about their experiences of using the services.
Community Research Volunteers
We are committed to trying to make changes to health and social care services that reflect the needs of the people in the local community. In order to do that, we carry out two in-depth research projects each year that look at the key concerns and issues that residents have told us. We are looking for volunteers that have experience in carrying out research using different research methods and writing engaging reports.
Marketing and Communications Volunteers
Do you love writing? Are you creative and passionate about social media? As a marketing and communications volunteer, you will help raise awareness of Healthwatch Hounslow, promote our projects and surveys, and create content for all our digital channels.
