A Fellowship for Life:
The award of a Churchill Fellowship in 2014 has been one of the major highlights of my professional career so far. Being given the freedom and support to pursue a plan I had to introduce changes to better protect vulnerable children at risk of abuse and neglect has given me much greater self-confidence to say what I believe in.
Putting together a comprehensive report backed up with international evidence will, I strongly believe, help to turn the tide of child abuse and neglect in the UK and beyond. The Fellowship award from The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust has opened doors I did not even know existed and has resulted in the launch of new projects which, I hope, will make our world, full of danger as well as opportunities, a better place for children to live in, wherever they come from and wherever they live.
I’ve met inspirational people from around the globe who have filled me with enthusiasm to make a real difference to children, no matter how small or large that difference might be, and I’ve developed the professional skills to push forward children’s advocacy at every possible opportunity.
If you are in any doubt at all about applying for a Fellowship you need hesitate no longer. The incredibly dedicated and professional team at The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust will help you to make your project dreams a reality, and I am totally confident that you will have the most wonderfully fulfilling professional experience that you could ever wish for. It really is a Fellowship for Life.
