Community Champion

Do you enjoy chatting and listening to people? Are you interested in playing a part in shaping health and social care in Rutland? If so, then this role could be for you! Community Champions represent Healthwatch Rutland in their locality (street, village or town) or area of interest (such as a dementia group, carers group or sports club). You would also gather feedback from these areas and with permission pass it back to HWR who can then make sure it is heard by the people who design and deliver services. The great thing about becoming a Healthwatch Community Champion is that the role can be shaped by you and fit around your lifestyle. You can give as much or as little time as you want and shape the work around what works for you, in line with Healthwatch Rutland’s aims and objectives.


- An interest in Health and Social Care - Being able to communicate with others

There is a Healthwatch in every community in England. Here in Rutland, we facilitate opportunities for you to have a powerful voice about the health and social care services you use.
We also offer signposting so that you can find the NHS services you need.
