Volunteer with us

Be the eyes and ears on care in your community

Susan - one of our volunteers "I love people, which is one of the things I get out of volunteering", says Susan, who is one of our local Healthwatch volunteers.

As a Healthwatch volunteer, Susan often goes out into her local community to talk to local people and find out about their experiences of health and care services. 

Our volunteers are people like you who live or work in different parts of Cambridgeshire. You know the place you live and the people in your community. We need your help to talk to more people about Healthwatch and find out what local health and care services are like for them. 

Our Community Listener Volunteers help us promote Healthwatch and talk to local people about their experiences. 

As a Healthwatch volunteer, you could also apply to take part in our enter and view visits to local health and care services. This is our legal right to visit places that provide publicly funded health or care services. In the last year we have made three different visits to Addenbrooke's and Hinchingbrooke Hospitals. You will need to do extra training before you can join any visits.
