Join us as a volunteer!
We wouldn't be able to operate without the dedicated support of our volunteers, who are at the heart of what we do.
We would love to hear from you if you would like to volunteer for Healthwatch Bristol. We welcome applications from people aged 18 and over, and you'll play a vital role in improving health and social care.

- We can offer you training, support, and the opportunity to meet new people
- Learn new skills or improve existing ones
- Gain knowledge and experience that could be a stepping-stone into employment or training
- Reasonable travel expenses paid
- Make a difference in your local community by giving people the opportunity to speak up about local health and social care services

We are committed to following safeguarding guidelines for both children and vulnerable adults and will provide training in this area where appropriate. All of our volunteers will be asked to undergo a DBS check which is at no cost to yourself as part of the application process.
Roles currently available
Digital inclusion for health and social care
This role is all about helping the community, and in particular seldom heard communities, be empowered to use digital platforms to access, communicate and order prescriptions from GP's and other health and social care information and services.
This is a brand new project that is in the process of being developed and due to be piloted towards the end of April. We are looking for teams of people to work together, in what will be an exciting and engaging role.
Are you passionate about supporting and giving people a voice to help create change in the health and social care setting? If so, this is for you.
One of Healthwatch’s statutory duties is to involve people in the scrutiny of health and social care services. Healthwatch Bristol captures information and communications from various health and social care meetings. Your role will be to help us get the correct information by taking accurate notes from important meetings.
In addition to capturing the correct information, we are regularly invited to read over documents from health and social care organisations to ensure they are user friendly. We are also asked to provide feedback or comments on information produced and provided by health and social care organisations.
If you are passionate about people's voices and creating information to create change this role is for you. You will play an integral part in the information and feedback we recommend, to help create change in health and social care.
