Healthwatch Lincolnshire Celebrating Volunteers Week 2019

Local charity Healthwatch Lincolnshire celebrated the difference volunteers make to their organisation and thanking them for all their time and dedication during this year’s Volunteers’ Week, which ran from 1-7 June.
On the 4th and 6th June, Healthwatch Lincolnshire held two events to recognise the difference volunteers make to the organisation. The events are the perfect opportunity for Healthwatch to say ‘thank you’ to their volunteers. They also gave volunteers the chance to meet up, share their experiences, talk to members of the Board and receive organisational updates.

Emma Batty, Volunteer Officer says “It’s really important to us to be able to give something back to our volunteers. Volunteers’ Week is a great time to thank volunteers for their contribution and recognise the huge number of hours they give. We couldn’t do what we do without them.”
Healthwatch Lincolnshire is an independent public voice for Health and Social Care with three core functions; to influence change and bring about improvements in local Health and Social Care Services; watchdog services, escalating concerns and instigating action and to signpost, helping members of the public if they are lost in the system or who need help and guidance.
Healthwatch Lincolnshire have a team of 40 volunteers committed to improving health services in the county. Volunteer roles include gathering the views of the public at GP surgeries and hospitals, research and reader panel work from home, authorised representative engagements at Care Homes and Care Providers, targeted project work and administration at the Healthwatch Lincolnshire office.
“Volunteers play a vital role in our organisation, we are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join us so we can do more to improve health and social care services for everyone in the county.
