Volunteer with Healthwatch Sandwell

We would like to show our appreciation to our wonderful team of 12 volunteers at Healthwatch Sandwell. This includes our Healthwatch Advisory Panel as well as our Generic Volunteers.

Although 2021 has been another challenging year with the COVID 19 pandemic and volunteer activities have been restricted, our volunteers have remained faithful and have focussed on the aim of improving health and social  care for people in Sandwell.

We are celebrating with our volunteers on 1st June with a virtual social get together for an evening of fun ! This year our team of volunteers has grown and we have welcomed new volunteers including Anne Marie, Daniel and Manjit who bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm.

Healthwatch Advisory Board

In delivering Healthwatch Sandwell, we are advised by our Healthwatch Advisory Board who are drawn from members of the public.

This group provides advice on:

  • Healthwatch Sandwell work programme priorities
  • The Enter and View programme to monitor the quality of care
  • Identifying key public concerns
  • Community engagement activity

They act as the voice of the people and make sure that Healthwatch Sandwell adheres to the core principles of, confidentiality, respect, feedback, transparency and influence.

Youth Healthwatch

This is some of the things they say about volunteering:

“I want to help improve health and social care services in Sandwell”

“helped me build upon my confidence and personal skills”

“it has helped my communication skills by communicating with different

aged groups regularly”

If you would like to join our team of volunteers, training and support is available for every role, and experience is not essential. The most important thing we look for is a belief that people in Sandwell should have the best health and social care services possible, and a desire to be part of making that happen
