Our Steering Group
Healthwatch Dorset Steering Group
Join our Steering Group and make a difference
Healthwatch Dorset is now seeking a Chair to lead its Steering Group as well as Steering Group members. We welcome interest from all sections of the local community.
Steering Group 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.
Steering Group meetings are held every month. In addition, Steering Group members will need to spend around six days a month on Steering Group matters, plus emails and occasional meetings, both daytime and evening. The role is voluntary, but all out-of-pocket expenses will be covered. The term of office will be for an initial period of two years, with an option to extend by a further two years.
