Evolving Communities is an equal opportunities employer

​Join our Local Board and make a difference

Healthwatch Somerset is now seeking additional Local Board members.  We welcome interest from all sections of the local community.

Local Board members will oversee and contribute to the work programme and play a crucial role in monitoring its delivery.  They also play a part supporting the organisation to adhere to its principles, purpose and vision and ensuring that it operates in a moral and ethical way.

We’re looking for local people with a passionate interest in helping the local community shape the way their health and social care services are run.  Although not essential, if you have knowledge or experience in social care, children and young people, mental health, equalities and diversity this would be beneficial.

What’s expected

Local Board meetings are held every two months.  In addition, Local Board members will need to spend some time on Board matters, plus emails and occasional meetings, both daytime and evening. The role is voluntary, but all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses will be covered.
