Winston Churchill Memorial Trust
The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust funds UK citizens to investigate inspiring practice in other countries, and return with innovative ideas for the benefit of people across the UK.
Around 1,100 people apply annually, with roughly 150 applications being successful.
The Trust was established when Sir Winston Churchill died in 1965. Thousands of people, out of respect for the man and in gratitude for his inspired leadership, gave generously so that a living memorial to him could benefit future generations of British people.
The Trust carries forward Sir Winston Churchill’s legacy by funding UK citizens from all backgrounds to travel overseas in pursuit of new and better ways of tackling a wide range of the current challenges facing the UK. Successful applicants are known as Churchill Fellows for life. No qualifications are required, just a project and the desire and motivation to improve their community, profession or field.
I am incredibly grateful to the Trust for funding my travel and work, and I owe it to them, and the wider sector, to produce something of use. I would strongly encourage anyone with a project or idea for which travel is a necessity to apply, and I am happy to field questions from those wishing to do so. Indeed, I spoke to two 2017 Fellows before their final interviews. Please do get in touch.
What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?
– Winston Churchill, 10 October 1908

I joined More Partnership as an Associate Partner in late 2015. More’s collective expertise helps our clients – in education, the arts, healthcare, science and charities – to fundraise more effectively, and create a better world. I am the lead digital consultant at More.
Today, More Partnership is a close-knit team of professionals: more than 20 partners networked across Europe and a small group of specialist support staff at head office in Scotland.
We come together in project teams and at regular events to share our expertise with clients and, crucially, each other. That way, we maximise both learning and value for the organisations we work with.
