Involving Medway Community Health Researchers – Join the team!

Are you interested in improving health and wellbeing in Medway? Would you like to help people get heard? Do you want to learn new skills? Medway Voluntary Action is recruiting to expand their team of volunteer Community Health Researchers to help make sure the voices and experiences of local people are listened to in health planning.

Involving Medway is a partnership between community organisations and NHS Medway Clinical Commissioning Group aimed at building healthier communities. Medway Voluntary Action (MVA) has teamed up with expert health research trainer, Tess Luetchford, to develop a year’s exciting programme of volunteer health research. We are interested in recruiting local residents from across the Medway Towns to carry out interviews within local communities. You will receive free training and additional support from MVA.

Involving Medway’s Community Health Researchers have already influenced health and care planning in Medway including the development of adult community health services and plans for new health centres and they’ve also found the role personally fulfilling – here’s what one volunteer said about their experiences:

"You will never know how much being part of your programme has significantly helped me this year… it has increased my purpose - to the point of inspiring me to learn more about community health that has given me a complete change in future career direction.”
