Become an Inspection Volunteer

Passionate about good care? We are looking for people to help us carry out our work. We’d like people who use care services and their family members to help make sure care in Scotland continues to improve, by becoming an inspection volunteer.

Inspection volunteers are members of the public who use a care service, have used a care service in the past or care for someone like a family member or friend who has used a care service.

Volunteers help the Care Inspectorate get the views of people using care services.

They work closely with the Care Inspectorate’s teams of specialist inspectors and together they help spot where things need to improve, help keep people safe and ensure that the rights of people receiving care are respected and their needs met.

After a programme of training and induction, you will spend time with service users and carers during inspections and ensure their views are reflected accurately in the inspection. Travel and expenses are paid.
