Volunteers play a vital role in helping people have their say on health and social care. Volunteering with Healthwatch Sunderland can help you develop skills, gain experience and make a difference to your community.

Our 24

volunteers gave up over 450 hours of their time last year to help make a difference to local health and care services.
