Volunteer with WCA


Would you like to join the Board of Trustees at WCA?

Wandsworth Care Alliance (WCA) is a well-established and highly- regarded charity. It specialises in organising projects that enable people to express their views about local health and social care services and to influence the development of these services. This involves working with diverse groups, including people who often find it difficult to make their voices heard in the public arena. In recent years, WCA has been awarded two major, continuing contracts: one for setting up and running Healthwatch Wandsworth (HWW), the other for establishing and leading the Voluntary Sector Coordination Service (VSCS). As the VSCS we deliver a range of services to support the local voluntary sector infrastructure and to promote more effective collaboration between the Borough's diverse third sector organisations, and to build a more productive partnership between them and the statutory organisations.

The WCA Board of Trustees are seeking to recruit new members to replace those whose terms of office will end during 2021. Previous Board or Trustee experience is not essential but we are also especially interested to hear from candidates who are prepared to serve as Chair Designate (Roles and responsibilities of Trustees and Chair of the Board) with a view to taking on a Chairing role in the near future. This is an excellent opportunity to engage with the work of a successful voluntary organisation that is committed to working with the community to achieve positive change.
