Healthwatch Birmingham is the independent champion for people who use health and social care in the city. They listen to what service users think is good about a service, bad or could be improved about services. They cover all services like GPs, hospitals, dentists, opticians, pharmacists, care/nursing in the community and care in residential homes. They use feedback and experiences of service users to drive change and improvement in local services. Malachi volunteers have been given the opportunity of working with Healthwatch Birmingham in the roles of Community Engagement volunteers.
The role will provide an opportunity to develop new skills, build on existing experience and knowledge whilst also supporting any CV gaps.
Volunteering with Healthwatch is a great opportunity to give something back to the community and make a real difference to local people. Community Engagement volunteers will engage with a wide range of individuals and communities, working at different venues and locations including public spaces and events.
Volunteer will also be able to make a difference to health and social care services on behalf of Healthwatch by gathering public experience and supporting Healthwatch’s research and investigations.
