They will reach out and engage with the community on their own terms, making sure to listen to their experiences and build their confidence by ensuring that their voices are heard.
• Volunteer Support Mentor
Healthwatch Volunteer Support Mentors are representatives of seldom heard groups and support Healthwatch by using their experience and influence to build confidence within these
groups. They will act as a mentor, assist and encourage the others to become involved in
Healthwatch, empowering them to share their experiences, promote the activities of Healthwatch and get involved in the work that is done.

Healthwatch Sector Champions are representatives of Voluntary Community Support (VCS) organisations, education establishments and private industry. They support Healthwatch by using their expertise and influence to build connections between Healthwatch, their organisations and clients. They will promote Healthwatch within their organisation and encourage their clients to become involved with Healthwatch, advertising the activities of Healthwatch and the work that they do.
