Calling all community groups

Does your group meet regularly or play an active role in the community?

Would your members be willing to talk about their health and social care
experiences in a confidential setting?

Would a representative from your group like to become a ‘Hub Lead’ and be the link
between the Hub and Healthwatch?

Is your group keen to play an active role in shaping local health and social care?

Healthwatch Devon is all about local voices being able to influence the delivery and design of local services. Not just people who use them, but anyone who might need to in future.

In each Devon town and village we’re asking existing and new local community groups who already have close connections with people in our community to sign up and become part of Healthwatch Devon’s network. We would like Healthwatch Hub leads and members to collect and gather people’s views and experiences of health and social care services in Devon

With so many changes happening we would like you to help us gather those experiences of your members, good or bad, so that we can share these experiences with those who have the power to make change happen.

Other Local Healthwatch around the country have worked with their local communities to make change happen and we want you to help us achieve this for Devon.
