Healthwatch Solihull is the independent champion for local people’s voices in health and social care across Solihull.  This service is delivered by Engaging Communities Staffordshire CIC (ECS), a Community Interest Company that also delivers seven other Healthwatch contracts.  

We aim to ensure that organisations work better together.  We do this by putting local communities at the heart of making decisions about their care and by providing real insight and engagement solutions to our partners, and by giving the local community a very real and powerful voice to make change where needed.

We are now looking for an energetic and committed full-time Community Outreach Lead, someone who is keen to make a difference to the lives of Solihull people by ensuring that health and care services are geared to their needs.

We wish to appoint a high performing Community Outreach Lead, who will enhance our Engagement Team and annual plan of community outreach activities.  The successful candidate will be required to engage with individuals, voluntary groups and organisations to enable people to share their views, concerns and suggestions about health and social care services and ensure their views are properly represented to commissioners and providers of health and social care services.  The Community Outreach Lead will also be responsible for securing the involvement of all groups within all communities in the planning and delivery of health and social care services in Solihull together with promoting volunteer activities and supporting the recruitment of Healthwatch members and champions.
