Get involved

Do you want to help make a difference to health and social care?  Whether you would like to volunteer with us, work in partnership, or share your views, we'd love to hear from you.

We need people like you to help us gather the views of the people in Sunderland.  Healthwatch Sunderland has an active group of local people who volunteer with us and are committed to improving local health & social care services and want to make a real difference.

As a volunteer you will get the chance to be the eyes and ears of Healthwatch Sunderland by helping to support a range of different engagement activities.  These activities are carried out across Sunderland and will help to gather the views of local people who tell us what matters to them when it comes to health and social care services.

Our volunteers take part in activities such as:

  • Distributing Healthwatch information and promoting Healthwatch events and activities to local people.
  • Engaging and consulting with people in the local community to gather their views and experiences of using health and social care services.
  • Our Authorised Representatives carry out Enter and View visits to health and social care premises while services are being delivered and report back findings.
