Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do

From talking to people about their experiences of health and social care, to writing reports, to updating our social media - volunteers are vital to our work. Whether you have a few hours to spare or are looking for a regular commitment, we've got a volunteering role to suit you. 

Current volunteering opportunities

Take a look at our current volunteering opportunities:

  • Healthwatch Trafford champion - representing us at public events and gathering feedback.
  • Enter and View volunteers - To get a first hand look at how health and social care services are running we train some volunteers to go into services and ask people about their experiences of them, like a care home. This includes observing how the service runs, talking to patients, carers and staff, and contributing to a report about your visit. 
  • Healthwatch Trafford Administration/Research Volunteer - helping with research, analysis and business support.
  • Become a Board Member - If you like a challenge this is the role for you! We are particularly interested in applications from people with a knowledge of health or social care services or have a good knowledge of their local area. To find out more about this particular role, email andrew@healthwatchtrafford.co.uk.

Youthwatch Trafford

Are you age 14 to 18? Looking for a volunteer opportunity? You could be exactly what we are looking for!

Youthwatch Trafford are Healthwatch Trafford’s young volunteers age 14-18. Youthwatch help us to communicate with other young people in Trafford, to find out what they think and to find out if services for young people are doing a good job. Children and young people are too often not asked about changes that affect them. We want to change that.

Email us at info@healthwatchtrafford.co.uk if you want to ask any questions about what’s involved.
