Here’s what some of our volunteers have to say about their experience:

“I get a lot of satisfaction knowing what I am doing is ensuring that the patients voice is heard and represented in a constructive way. I also like working as part of a volunteer team making a difference to health and social care I have made lots of friends and met like-minded volunteers who also believe that patients need to be represented and heard to enable change in our community”

“Young Healthwatch has given me insight into the importance of the public voice in improving the health and social care services they use…Young Healthwatch has motivated me to take forward what I’ve learnt (specifically about having independent champions of patient voices) to my career”
