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:

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.

Patient Experience volunteers - Do you like listening to peoples’ stories? If so, this role could be for you. As part of our Patient Experience Programme, Healthwatch Hammersmith and Fulham visits local services to speak to patients about their experiences of using the services. The programme also uses remote communication methods to contact local people.

Project volunteers - We are committed to trying to make changes to health and social care services that reflect the needs of the people in the local community. In order to do that, we establish projects looking at the key concerns and issues that residents have told us. We need the assistance of volunteers to support our research projects and help us understand the issues residents are facing.
