Evolving Communities is a community interest company, established in 2013, to deliver a high quality local Healthwatch service. Alongside the delivery of local Healthwatch services in Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Somerset we specialise in independent consultation, engagement, and involvement services with patients, service users, and the public.

We are passionate about providing local people and communities with opportunities to have their say on and share their experiences of health and social care services.  Our vision is to see good quality services designed and delivered with the people who use them.  Our approach to delivering local Healthwatch is based on a strong volunteer programme with co-production at its heart, governance at a local level, and a commitment to local communications and marketing to encourage involvement in and awareness of our important work.

We are now seeking a Chief Executive who shares our commitment to developing local health and care services and can work with the Board of Directors to develop the organisation to the next stage.
