About this guidance
Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do and are an integral part of an effective Healthwatch. From speaking to local people to find out their views, to using this information to influence those who run services, volunteers play a vital role at Healthwatch.
This guide aims to support Healthwatch Volunteer Managers with:
- Management and support
- Measuring impact and evaluation
It offers best practice guidance to help you connect with different parts of your community and ensure that equality, diversity and inclusion is embedded into your volunteering program.
