We are an independent voice for the people of Essex. We gather and represent your views about health and care services across the county to help shape them. We are an independent charity set up under the Health & Social Care Act 2012.

Good or bad, we want to hear your views on the care you receive in Essex. Our work covers all areas of health and social care. We can also help you find out about and access health and social care services through our Information & Signposting Service.  You can share your experience or ask us questions by calling 0300 500 1895 or texting 07712395398. All details of how to get in touch with our friendly team can be found here.

We undertake high-quality research and engagement to uncover your lived experience of services. You can view our most recent reports in Our Online Library.

We often have opportunities for volunteers to join us on specific projects to help shape services in their area. Check out our website here to see current vacancies.
