Organisation Healthwatch East Sussex

What is Young Healthwatch?

Young Healthwatch is part of Healthwatch East Sussex, an organization which listens to the public and feeds information back to decision makers to help make services better for people.
Young Healthwatch looks at the healthcare issues that directly effect young people. We aim to ensure that young people’s thoughts, ideas and experiences are listened to and acted upon by decision makers, to make things better for young people across the county.

Who can volunteer?

Young Healthwatch is open to all young people between the ages of 12-21 living and/or studying in East Sussex.
You don’t need any previous experience or knowledge to be able to volunteer with us, just some spare time and a real interest in helping to make things better for young people.

What do volunteers do?

Volunteers have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities and events depending on what project they
are working on. This might include:
Visits to services e.g. hospitals/GP practices etc.
Designing surveys
Designing and creating artwork, pieces of
writing and/or social media posts
Attending events and being a voice for young people

What is the time commitment?

How much time you spend volunteering depends on you, what you are interested in and what projects and events we currently have for you to get involved in.
As a guide, we suggest that you should be able to commit 4 hours per month to the role (although this is flexible and can be less or more as needed/wanted).
Duration: Flexible. Some people may only want to volunteer for a few months, or for a certain project, while others may want to volunteer for longer periods.
