Healthwatch, SW!TCH, and LifeLine Church join forces for charity car wash

On the afternoon of Friday 8th September 2023, Healthwatch Barking and Dagenham, SW!TCH, and Fusion joined forces to host a charity car wash for the local community.

The majority of the team working the car wash was made up of local young people volunteering their time in order to support a charitable cause. This included a number of SW!TCH Ambassadors—young leaders hand-picked from our SW!TCH mentoring programmes—and a collection of young people from LifeLine Church’s youth group, known as Fusion.

The event was a fantastic opportunity—our volunteers not only got to help the community, but also had the chance to meet other like-minded individuals. It also helped to provided a different perspective on young people—highlighting their willingness to give back and support local initiatives.

It was plain to see how passionate these young people are towards their community and the drive they have to work together to effect positive change. Each group also took the time to highlight the kind of work they’re involved in, both to guests and to the other young people involved.

Like Healthwatch, both SW!TCH and Fusion are greatly invested in the local area. We’re looking forward to working together on more young people-led projects in the future!
