Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do.

Our volunteers are a valued part of the Healthwatch Rochdale team and play a vital role in helping us to improve local health and care services for Rochdale Borough residents.

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.

Our volunteers help us in a number of ways from being part of our Advisory Group to filling in monthly surveys for our #Youthwatch100. Whether you have an hour to spare or you're looking for a more regular commitment, there are a range of ways you can get involved.

I am passionate about the borough, having been born and bred in Rochdale and lived here all my life and I am passionate about improving health and care services

#Youthwatch100 is a group of 100 Rochdale residents aged 13-18 who are given the chance to share their views through a monthly survey. Those who complete the survey will be entered into a monthly prize draw to win a £20 shopping voucher of the winner’s choice.

Members can pick and choose what surveys to answer but with a prize draw every month the more surveys you complete the more chances to win.
