Welcome to Young Healthwatch
We are looking for young people in Northamptonshire between 11 to 24 years old who are keen to make a difference in health and social care and are interested in young people's rights and wellbeing.
What you will do
You will have the opportunity, after training, to get involved as a mystery shopper, media squad or as a young champion. Become a Mystery Shopper and work in a team visiting health services and look at how well they work with young people and what can be improved. Or, become a part of the Media Squad and help us create and develop our advertising. Or, become a Young Champion and spread the word about us at events by giving out leaflets and asking people about their views of health and social care. You will meet regularly with other young people and Healthwatch staff to discuss issues and to raise anything you have discovered.
What you will get from volunteering with Healthwatch
You will get the opportunity to meet new people. You will get the chance to have your say about the decision making process, and support a worthwhile cause such as mental health. Develop your real-life skills as you gain valuable work experience.
