HCHF - volunteers needed for pitch panels

As you know the Healthier City and Hackney Fund has now launched and the deadline for Expressions Interest has passed.  Following this, organisations who are successful are asked to come and do a short pitch on their project to a small panel and we are looking for volunteers from the team to be panellists on the 11th, 12th and/or 13th December. Pitches will be taking place either hear at HSC or CCG offices.  Lots of people who have volunteered in the past have fed back that they found the experience really rewarding.

Should you chose to volunteer, you will receive a pack of (short!) application forms to review beforehand, then on the day will work as a team of 3 panellists, listening to 6-8 pitches. These will last no more than 5 minutes, and there will be a chance to ask questions afterwards. You'll then need to discuss your views as a panel, and agree a score for each one.

 If you are interested in being a panellist please could you let me know:

  • Which date(s) are you free (11th, 12th and/or 13th December)? You will need to be available all day on your chosen dates
  • Whether you have any particular expertise/interest in any of the priority areas for this year (outlined below)

Healthy Activities:

  • mental wellbeing at times of change
