Fellowship: 2016

‘How does social change happen?’ This question was posed at a leadership training residential which I attended as part of my Clore Social Leadership fellowship.  

It stuck with me.  I realised that in some form it has fascinated me since I was teenager studying history at school:  How does change happen - any kind of change, but particularly major societal or political change?

Fellowship: 2016

The leadership industry offers numerous theoretical frameworks and models, ranging from the instructional to the inspirational. The majority of these models are focused on the exogenous – the external factors, and offer up-skilling and progression as a solution to overcoming leadership challenges. But is this enough?

Jo Youle is the CEO of Missing People, a charity that offers a lifeline to the 250,000 people who run away and go missing each year in the UK.

I don’t like making mistakes. I don’t think many of us do. I don’t like getting things wrong since I’m the sort of person who works hard to get things right. I’m pre-programmed to think round corners, to not let the wool be pulled over my eyes.

Who speaks for who? People affected by life-limiting illness as advocates

Posted on March 6, 2017
Posted by Claire Morris
Fellowship: 2015

18 million people die in pain and distress each year around the world because they don’t have access to palliative care including medications to treat pain. This is a horrifying statistic, and unfortunately easier to comprehend and empathise with if you have witnessed a painful death. But palliative care is not just about dying well, it is also about people with life-limiting conditions, such as cancer, HIV and dementia, and their families and carers, living well.

Why aren't enough UK Armed Forces personnel seeking help for mental health problems?

Fellowship: 2016

I’ve worked with the Armed Forces community for many years, both in military help-seeking research at the King’s Centre of Military Health Research and in healthcare policy at the Royal British Legion. I was fortunate enough last year to be a Forces in Mind Trust Fellow on Clore Social Leadership’s Fellowship Programme.

Matt Stevenson-Dodd is the Chief Executive of Street League, UK’s leading sport for employment charity, and has been recently selected by The Guardian as one of the top charity CEO’s on social media. Matt is a guest speaker on the Clore6: Youth Sector Emerging Leaders Programme on 8 March.

The problem for charities with transparency is simple. Driven by a scarcity of funding, we feel compelled to tell ever more hard-hitting stories about the beneficiaries we serve rather than balancing this storytelling with hard facts about the actual impact we achieve (or don’t).
