Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do.

Our volunteers are out in the community everyday listening to people to find out if health and care is working for them.

Whether you want to gain valuable work experience, help improve care in your community or learn new skills, there are lots of ways you can join us to make a real difference.

Our volunteers support us in many different ways. From speaking to local people to find out what they think about health and care, to using these views to influence those who run services, volunteers play an important role at Healthwatch.

I enjoy finding out about how the NHS has changed and developed over the years
