Volunteer & make a difference in 2018
Join our team, develop new skills, enhance your CV and strengthen the community voice on health & social care in Devon.
We’ve got a variety of interesting and challenging volunteer roles. If you like getting out and about & meeting new people you could be part of our Promotions team spreading the good word of what Healthwatch Devon is about. We have a busy time coming up full of events and need volunteers to help us talk directly to the people of Devon, in a variety of locations, to find out their thoughts and feelings.
Or, be part of our Good Care Matters team and talk to people, and observe and assess the nature & quality of services.
If you would like to be more office based, we also have admin and clerical tasks that we are looking for volunteers to help with.
We will provide full support to enable you to carry out your role including comprehensive training, travel and subsistence.
