Angela encourages participation in the Churchill Fellowship

The Fellowships were founded as the national memorial to the late Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill in 1965, and support UK citizens from all backgrounds to travel the world in order to bring back innovative ideas and solutions for UK communities and businesses.

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust has sent out 5700 Fellows since its inception and plans to send another 150 in 2020 covering the Built environment, education, emergency response, social enterprise, environment and sustainability, healthcare, palliative and end of life care, physical activity, rural living, science and technology and suicide prevention as well as an open category for projects outside these parameters.

Angela commented,

“The UK faces a number of pressing issues today, and the same can be said about every country in the world. Now more than ever it is important to share knowledge and deepen understanding of other approaches to problem-solving in order to develop our own solution. I would encourage anyone interested in pursuing a Churchill Fellowship to get in touch with the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust as soon as possible.”

The closing date for applications is 17th September 2019 for travels in 2020. For more information and to sign up visit www.wcmt.org.uk
