Meet the Volunteers
Why do you volunteer?
Volunteering is great for me; it fits around my lifestyle and looking after my children.
How long have you been a volunteer for Healthwatch?
What is your volunteer role in Healthwatch?
I am an Enter & View volunteer and have visited local hospitals. I also help with surveys, events and regularly represent Healthwatch to raise awareness in my local library.
How have you benefited from being a volunteer, what training have you completed?
I have gained confidence in talking to people and learnt new skills. I have completed
Enter & View and Deaf Awareness Training.
Anything else you would like to tell us about yourself or volunteering.
I also volunteer for another charity, Bexley Snap for disabled children. I enjoy my role very much and love to see the children progress. That’s why I wanted to volunteer for Healthwatch, to help make a difference to our health and social care services and give people a voice.
