Job description

Background/Purpose
Healthwatch Waltham Forest is an organisation which has previously benefitted from the
participation of volunteers from diverse cultural backgrounds, influencing the provision of Health
& Social care services across the borough. This includes research projects to evaluate the
quality of NHS services, signposting patients to relevant healthcare services, providing
information to the public on available Health and Social care services and guidance on
complaint procedures. Healthwatch Waltham Forest now envisages the creation of new roles
and opportunities for members of emerging communities across the borough (Afghan,
Nepalese, Algerian, Burmese, Sri Lankan, Romanian & Bulgarian communities) as
representatives of members of their community in the Health & Social care sector.
The main motive of this opening is to ensure that members of emerging communities have
access to information about healthcare services available to them, and that no individual is
deprived of Health and Social care services due to lack of knowledge about services or issues
with communication in English. This would be a great opportunity for willing volunteers from
emerging communities to become more actively and directly involved in health and social care
projects through Healthwatch. In addition, this role would avenue opportunities for shadowing at
senior committee and board level meetings, working together with Healthwatch liaison
representatives and the project team at a strategic level.


Benefits:
CV building opportunities in Health & Social care sector.
Developing new skills.


Tasks:
Get involved with community outreach programmes by Healthwatch Waltham
Forest, specifically targeting emerging communities in Waltham Forest.
Provide advice to the Healthwatch Waltham Forest staff on strategic influencing
opportunities to raise the profile of Healthwatch Waltham Forest to members of emerging
communities.
Engage in research projects led by Healthwatch Waltham Forest, aimed at enabling
access and providing awareness of healthcare services to emerging communities.
Get involved in decision making about raising standards of Health & Social care service
provision.


Time commitment:
Minimum of 2 hours a week.


When:
Dates and times as agreed with Healthwatch Waltham Forest staff.
Basic requirements:
Ability to communicate fluently in native language and English.
Preferably belong to an emerging community in Waltham Forest (Afghan, Nepalese,
Algerian, Burmese, Sri Lankan, Romanian & Bulgarian communities).
Strong desire to raise awareness about healthcare services.
Strong communication skills.
Commitment to personal progression and openness to diversity.
