The South Glamorgan CHC consists of 24 members who can be supplemented by a number of co-opted members. These members are supported by 9 members of staff who are based in the CHC office.
The members of the Community Health Council are appointed by the Local Authorities, Third Sector Organisations and the Welsh Government.
The number of members appointed is limited within each locality area:
Local Authorities each nominate 3 elected councillors.
The Third Sectors each nominate 3.
The Welsh Government appoints a further 6 from each locality by public appointment.
The 2 Local Authority areas from which our members can be appointed are Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.
Members are unpaid and only receive out-of-pocket expenses.
The CHC is continuously looking to improve the diversity of membership, especially from under-represented groups and/or individuals, within the localities of Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan.
Co-opted Members are volunteers that are not appointed by the local authorities, third sector or welsh government. They share similar responsibilities as full Members, but the only difference is Co-opted Members are unable to vote or become Members of the CHC Executive Committee. We are actively encouraging individuals to become Co-opted Members to be the eyes and ears of the community.
We are currently recruiting new volunteer members – if you are interested please contact the South Glamorgan Community Health Council.

The staff of the Community Health Council provide administrative support to the CHC members.
