SRC has a number of sectional portfolios that encompass key areas of activity within the organisation. A portfolio name or title at SRC embodies the core function of that area of the business and should align with the organisation’s vision and mission.
After much deliberation, engagement and collaboration, SRC is pleased to announce that the Community Outreach Team (COT) has changed its portfolio name to Community Engagement Team (CET). The name change was informed by the realization that the portfolio’s core functions go beyond community outreach activities and that as a requirement in research, community engagement will ensure and maintain partnerships and support within the community. Furthermore, the name change is in line with the National Health Act 2003 and SA GCP.
The CET role is to engage, educate, partner and collaborate with the community members and stakeholders.
