Healthwatch Islington has been nominated for a prestigious national award for the work of our Digital Champions (and volunteer researchers) supporting digitally excluded residents so they could still access vital services during the pandemic.
We were shortlisted under the ‘Celebrating our volunteer team’ category in the Healthwatch Awards 2021, which are run by Healthwatch England. This annual event celebrates the difference Healthwatch’s 4,000 plus staff and volunteers across England have made over the past year.
- Healthwatch Islington is one of only 30 local Healthwatch out of a total of 152 across England to be in the running for one of the awards.
- We will find out whether we have been successful during Healthwatch Week, which runs from Tuesday 9 November 2021.
