Community Southwark is the umbrella body for the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) in Southwark. Our members are not for profit groups and organisations operating in Southwark. We support charities, community groups and individuals through capacity building, networks, and volunteering.
We are proud to host Healthwatch Southwark (HWS) and support its work in connecting individuals and community groups to Health and Social Care Providers, ensuring their voices are heard and able to influence change.
This role is at the heart of engaging with communities to support local people to access Health and Social Care, and make sure their voices are heard so that services can improve.
This is an exciting time to join us with a strong Advisory Board, a stable local authority contract, and a clear purpose – to use the authority and position of Healthwatch to support historically under-represented communities in Southwark to make change.
We welcome applications from all sectors and experience levels. We particularly encourage applications from disabled, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people and people from the LGBTQ+ communities.
