About Evolving Communities
Evolving Communities is a Community Interest Company (CIC) operating nationally from our Wiltshire HQ. We specialise in public and stakeholder engagement and insight, giving people a voice to influence positive change in health and social care at local, regional, and national levels.
The primary vehicle for delivering our objectives is through the local independent Healthwatch services that we provide on behalf of several local authorities, including Dorset, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Wolverhampton. Healthwatch is England’s health and social care champion, with statutory powers to make sure NHS leaders and other decision makers hear and use public feedback to improve care.
We are seeking to expand our volunteer board of directors to help:
• Formulate and review our strategy
• Ensure policy and practices keep to our aims
• Make sure we function within our legal and financial requirements
• Achieve best practice in all our activities
• Promote our objectives to a wide range of audiences.
The Board meets six times a year, virtually and in person, with ad hoc meetings scheduled as needed. This is a volunteer role though remuneration for expenses can be claimed.
Who we are looking for
We are looking for people who can demonstrate an interest in, and understanding of, health and social care policy making and delivery, from professional or personal experience, ideally set against a background of business development in the commercial or not for profit sectors.
If you are interested in patient led input to health and social care delivery, you understand our needs and challenges, and you have the experience and skills to contribute to our business, strategically and in other ways, we would like to hear from you.
