Support for a one year specialist fellowship for the 2016 cohort under the Clore Social Leadership Programme.

What is the issue?

The lack of opportunities for leaders to develop their skills is one of the most serious challenges facing the social sector. This is being compounded by the current economic climate. The Clore Social Leadership Programme is a ground-breaking opportunity to build leadership capacity at a time when the challenges and complexities of leadership in the social change sector continue to grow. The Clore Social Fellowship is open to ambitious and influential individuals pioneering social change in the UK and internationally, whether working in charities, community organisations, social enterprises, co-operatives, social landlords or housing associations.

Aims of the project

The Clore Social Leadership Programme identifies the UK’s most promising social leaders and give them gold-standard training, skills and opportunities.

The Programme invests in Fellows’ leadership potential so that they can transform their communities, organisations and the world around them.

A Friends Provident Foundation Specialist Fellowship has been offered in 2014, 2015 and 2016 cohorts for an aspiring leader with an interest in developing practical ways of building an economic system that is fairer and more sustainable.

Of interest to…

  • Aspiring leaders working in the social sector.
  • Those working with communities to stimulate local economic growth and resilience.
  • People and organisations interested in practical ways in which civil society organisations might influence change at the systemic level to increase transparency, long-term thinking and a more equitable distribution of resources across the UK.
