Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do.

Our volunteers help us reach out to people across West Sussex to listen to their experiences of health and social care services in the county. 

Whether you want to gain valuable work experience, help improve care in your community or learn new skills, there are lots of ways you can join us to make a real difference.

I enjoy being a volunteer as I feel I am contributing and making a difference to a good cause which can help lots of other people, not just in our own county, but so nationally. Contributing to the wider aims of Healthwatch West Sussex is also very rewarding.
