Young volunteers wanted for mystery shop

21st July 2020, 10:37am | By David |

Healthwatch Wiltshire is looking for young volunteers to help review online mental health services in Wiltshire.

We would like people aged 16-25 to take part in our mystery shop focusing on what’s good and what could be improved about mental health support available locally for young people.

Julie Brown, Healthwatch Wiltshire Manager, said: “We want young people to help us with this project so we can understand how well online mental health support works for them and what changes they would like to see.

“Sharing your views can make a real impact on how these services are developed, and even if you can only spare an hour or two, your feedback will be invaluable in ensuring young people’s voices are heard.”

Sign up today
