'I got involved with Healthwatch West Sussex as I felt this would complement other volunteering I do and it has. I’m a member of the Safeguarding Adults Board, championing the need to better understand peoples’ experiences and concerns.
We’ve been successful in getting a pilot system in place, for getting feedback directly from people about the safeguarding process.'
'I needed work experience on my CV to get a job after my studies. Healthwatch West Sussex has been so accommodating, providing me with skills that I know will be useful in the work place. This has included shadowing experienced volunteers on service visits. They have also asked to speak to more young people about their experiences and I have been able to input into their new engagement resources.'
