Somerset West Community Health Centre (SWCHC) is a non-profit, community-governed organization that provides a range of primary health care and social services. Its mission is to support people and communities to enjoy the best possible health and well-being. This is done by providing primary health care and social services, and promoting access to the social conditions that influence health, such as housing, food security, employment and civic engagement.
Board of Directors
SWCHC is looking for passionate and dedicated strategic thinkers to join our volunteer Board of Directors. Board members must be willing to attend a monthly Board meeting, and participate on one Committee.

Currently, all board and committee meetings are being held virtually.
While we invite all interested candidates to apply, to ensure the best possible decision-making environment, importance will be given to the diversity of board members in areas such as ethnicity, race, culture, gender, age, and areas of expertise and experience.
