Healthwatch England National Conference
We were invited to run a workshop at the Healthwatch England conference in Nottingham in July. This was to share our learning and progress on the recruitment, support and development of volunteers. The session was well attended and we were accompanied by 2 volunteers who helped us deliver the session.
Young volunteer Naz Mahmood took part in a Question and answer session to demonstrate how she is supported as a volunteer and Board Director Lesley explained how volunteers are central to our success and impact. Our Volunteer co-ordinator Craig enjoyed showcasing our Volunteer Programme which was highly commended for encouraging local young people to volunteer and make their voices heard.
The event also enabled us to launch our latest YouthWatch Leeds recruitment video “this is us” – Chapter 1:
