Healthwatch Bracknell Forest will need to represent the views of a wide range of communities across the Bracknell Forest. It must therefore ensure that it creates a pool of volunteers that can represent these groups, including minority groups.
By doing so it will allow Healthwatch Bracknell Forest to collect a range of issues affecting both small and large groups and also engage with specialised sectors of society.
To this end, volunteers should be recruited to represent or champion Healthwatch to collect issues from these groups and also provide feedback to them around changes in services, especially those who do not engage with health or social care services.
These volunteers will need to receive appropriate training and checks, especially those working with vulnerable people.
