About this event
The Healthwatch network is supported by thousands of volunteers who help make a difference to health and care across the country.
Volunteers' Week is a chance to celebrate and say thank you for the fantastic contribution our volunteers make.
This year we thank the 12 volunteers who helped us carry out research into local health and care provision, and supported people to access services. Some of the ways they helped included:
- Volunteers helped people have their say from home, gathering feedback over the telephone and online.
- Volunteer digital champions gave one-to-one digital support to local residents most at risk of digital exclusion. Support was provided over the phone, by email, or via other digital platforms.
- Volunteers reviewed websites of local health services to assess the accessibility and quality of the information they provide.
