Upcoming Healthwatch City of London Events

One of Healthwatch City of London’s purposes is to understand the needs, experiences and concerns of people who use health and social care services and to speak out on their behalf. To do that we need to hear from you so we provide a number of regular events where we can exchange views and raise issues or concerns. Ideally, we’d like to hold them face to face, but because of the current pandemic we are restricted to Zoom events.

Please see a list of our events below with joining details.

Volunteer Opportunity at VC Hackney – Can you help us get City residents talking about health?

Join our team of health & wellbeing Volunteer Researchers! Do you have ideas for how the City’s communities could be healthier and happier? Do you think people like you should have a say in what issues should be included as priorities? Would you be up for talking to your friends, family, people in your community, about this too? Our local authority is leading on a strategy for health and wellbeing in our areas. We are working to make sure real people, representing all of City’s diversity, get a real say in what goes in it. The project will run from now until mid-September.

Become a ‘volunteer researcher’.  You would engage with your friends and family, plus people in your wider community, asking them questions about health and wellbeing where they live. You would do this through asking people to fill in a survey, 1 on 1 interviews and maybe even hosting a group discussion or doing a stall at a community event.

This would involve: Getting trained in how to do this and receiving ongoing support from our staff and the other volunteers; engaging with friends and family and people in your wider community. In total we estimate this to require roughly 10 hours per month for the three month duration of the project. Benefits: a £50 voucher to recognise your valuable input; the chance to play a big role in shaping City’s health & wellbeing strategy; experience which can go on your CV.

Get involved by clicking on ‘Register Interest’ here, or to find out more, please contact Cornelia at or on 07305086348.
