Kate is the Volunteer and Project Officer. Kate’s job is to recruit, train and support volunteers for a variety of Healthwatch Newham activities and to help develop Healthwatch projects. She makes sure we have volunteers in the right place, at the right time and this enables us to liaise with Newham residents to understand people’s experiences. Kate organises our ‘Enter & View’ Programme, which involves our trained volunteers visiting services in health and social care identify good practice as well as any issues service users tell us they have. With the rest of the team, Kate strongly believes services can only improve if service users are fully involved in their design and delivery. In Newham, she is particularly keen that the many different community groups, particularly those that are seldom heard, are given every opportunity to provide their invaluable feedback about services. experience spans the statutory and voluntary sectors working firstly as a social worker then as an advocate in Newham for the past 9 years.
