I have been reflecting recently on how leadership is often described as a lonely and serious experience. Without a doubt these two words describe aspects of leadership, but a leader who can only be described as lonely or serious is unlikely to be inspirational. And inspirational is what all leaders should be.

Jean Demars has recently left his role at Praxis where he set up and developed a housing programme for destitute migrants, including support to street outreach services, volunteer hosting scheme and a cross-subsidised model of housing. He is now a consultant to the homelessness and migration sectors.
Jane Rowley is a researcher and lecturer who spent much of her career working directly with people affected by addiction. She is currently investigating the practical application of support mechanisms for ex forces personnel & their families with a focus on trauma and recovery.
They chose to collaborate in writing this blog to share some of the commonalities experienced in practice and start a conversation about how we might work more collaboratively across sectors. This blog, using Jean’s recent trip to Calais as a starting point is intended to be the first in a conversation which we hope will be expanded by other Clore Fellows in the months to come.

Three months ago, I didn’t really know anything at all about international development – the paths of UK-based charities like Marie Curie and international NGOs don’t often cross. Since then, I have had the extraordinary opportunity of spending my some of my Clore Social secondment in Ethiopia, learning about how Retrak transforms the lives of highly vulnerable children, many of whom live or work on the streets. The work of Retrak’s Community Development Workers absolutely blew me away, and has sent my head spinning about impact measurement, empowerment and long term change.

During my recent visit to Washington DC, I had the pleasure of meeting Holly, Edna and Marion. Together, these three sparky seniors run one of DCs growing networks of Senior Villages. Far from the retirement village I imagined, these three older women have built their Senior Village right within Glover Park - where they have collectively lived for 150 years – helping make their community a better place to grow older.

Eryl Bradley on what she has learnt in her two weeks with Clore Social.
Finding an internship during the summer holidays has become almost essential for my generation. Young people are nearly three times more likely to be unemployed than the rest of the population and the job market becoming increasingly competitive. As my friends and I head into our last year of university, working out how to navigate a career path beyond that can be a daunting prospect.

After nearly seven years as Founding Director the time for me to move on from Clore Social is here. This has been a very special part of my own leadership journey. It is a great privilege to have had the opportunity to found and grow a new initiative, building much needed leadership capacity for the social sector.

Despite her high profile and impressive achievements, Ruth Ibegbuna still wrestles with her inner voice that makes her feel unworthy.

When I was told about the joint ‘Systems Thinking and Action Experiment’ workshop with the Clore Leadership Programme, my first thought was that this could have something to do with hypnosis and regression. To be candid, the ‘pre-Clore Cordelia’ would have needed some convincing to attend but the ‘new Clore-infused Cordelia’ is totally open to new ways of thinking, working, learning and leading. So I jumped right in.

The opportunity to apply for a Clore Social Fellowship is one not to miss. If you have at least five years experience or more working in the third sector with charities, social enterprises, or housing associations this could be for you. Do you have a passion to make a difference for individuals and communities by overcoming social injustice, reaching unmet need and driving for change?
