Be part of the change

Our volunteer Change Makers help us to make changes that benefit all of us.

They are on our streets, visiting our neighbourhoods and communities, listening to people like you about their experience of using health and social care in Kent & Medway.

By listening and capturing your story, they generate changes that benefit hundreds of other people.

Could you be our next Change Maker?

Meet Grace

Grace lives in West Kent and she is a volunteer Change Maker. 

She regularly chats to her neighbours, and people living in her village, about the last time they went to the GP, visited a Care Home, used the optician, had a social care assessment or had a hospital appointment.

She captures all their stories.

Thanks to Grace, we now understand how people living in her village find it really hard to get public transport to the nearest GP surgery.

Thanks to Grace, the people in her village now have a voice.

Thanks to Grace, we can make sure decision makers hear their voices and take steps to finding a solution.

Thanks to Grace, change has happened
