We have a range of volunteering opportunities available with Healthwatch Warrington.
We hope the various roles we have on offer will give you the opportunity to:
Members of the Virtual Voices get involved by taking part in email polls, online questionnaires and surveys. If you join, you can decide how much or how little you want to get involved. Surveys should take about 15 minutes to complete and all completed surveys will be entered into a prize draw to win Vouchers for Local Warrington Businesses.
It’s a chance to make your voice heard and also support your local economy.
Information from completed surveys and questionnaires will be shared with Healthwatch Warrington and the organisation asking the question, this will help to shape and prioritise local health and social care services. Your personal details will not be shared, only your responses and comments.
We’re looking for people with an understanding of Health and Social issues that are important to the residents of Warrington.
