Healthwatch Wirral – April #Spare5 update

Apr 27, 2022 | News, Newsletter

April has been another busy month for #Spare5. We’ve seen even more organisations accessing, and enjoying, the #Spare5 workshop provided by the team here at Healthwatch Wirral.

What three words would I use for April? Engaging, Encouraging and Busy.

  • Engaging – We’ve been out and about meeting up with organisations in the community about how to #Spare5 and their experience of Health & Social Care. We’ve been really excited by some of the conversations and how people are so keen to get involved.
  • Encouraging – It’s been really encouraging to watch how people have taken on board the tools delivered in the #Spare5 workshops and really recognised that they have already been using them and how they can make their support even more bespoke for each individual.
  • Busy – #Spare5 is picking up more energy & excitement, with more and more organisations requesting sessions for their staff, volunteers and members. Alongside this, we are happy to be able to get out and about a lot more.

We have been hard at work developing new training sessions for anyone keen to volunteer with Healthwatch Wirral. Keep your eyes peeled for these being advertised! Want to get involved? Email us on the email address below.

154 people have accessed the #Spare5 training session so far, from several of our partners including Compañeros, Wirral Change and PHABulous Community Centre.
