Why volunteer for Healthwatch Camden?
You can give something back to your community and develop new skills.
Use your skills
You will get a say on what happens to the services in your local community.
You will get valuable work experience tailored to your needs.
You’ll be an active member of the local community, doing your part to make Camden a better place to live and work.
All you need to do is to contact us and tell us how much time you are willing to set aside and in what capacity you would like to volunteer. We will let you know if we have a suitable position available.
We recruit volunteers on a project-by-project basis.
We offer internship and volunteering opportunities in our office. Whether or not roles exist depends on the projects we’re currently working on.
For example, we always need volunteers to help edit and update our Start Here… online guide. The guide aims to quickly point people to health and social care services in Camden and beyond, depending on their needs.
We need volunteers with good data input skills as well as a knowledge of CMS in particular Drupal. We prefer volunteers to stay for a few months at a time so that they can get a better understanding of the system.
From time to time we also have research opportunities.
You will get good office experience which you can then add to your CV.
We often have stalls at events around the Camden borough. Usually we need volunteers in the summer months to help out at stalls, but it is also throughout the year.
Volunteers get to talk to people in our community, give them advice on how to access health and social care services, help point them in the right direction if they are looking for a service and also help them to find out their rights.
Visit our blog to find out about the types of events you could be involved in.
Volunteers gain events management experience as well as the chance to improve their communication skills.
Experts by experience
We also work with experts in health and social care. People can lend their expertise to help us to raise awareness of our work and also the health and social care services available in our borough.
