"After I left teaching, I was interested in finding a volunteering role which could help make a difference in other people's lives. As health and social care affects all of us, volunteering for Healthwatch Trafford seemed the ideal opportunity. 

I have been a volunteer for 6 years now and in that time I have been involved in many different activities in community based venues and health and social care settings. I have found it a very interesting and rewarding experience helping others, learning new skills, and acquiring a range of knowledge. I've also enjoyed the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. If you are interested in volunteering, why not contact Healthwatch Trafford for a chat? It may just be what you are looking for."
