Emergency services: crisis prevention, response and recovery

This award category

We are seeking applications that encourage new thinking at operational, tactical or strategic levels.

We recognise that the emergency services are a broad church, so welcome applicants from the emergency services and the organisations that work alongside them, whether fire and rescue, flood defences, electric infrastructure, emergency medicine, mountain rescue, frontline policing or elsewhere.

We are equally keen to hear from those who work behind the scenes, or in organisations managing the aftermath of emergencies.

Additional funding for interpreters is available.

A life-changing opportunity

Have you ever wanted to explore new ideas in a subject close to your heart? Discover how things are done in other countries and bring that knowledge back home?

A Churchill Fellowship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to expand your horizons and make a difference. It offers up to two months overseas, researching a topic of your choice – and then a lifetime relationship to help you spread the global insights that you bring back.

Everyone can apply, regardless of age, background or qualifications, so long as they are a UK citizen over 18. We particularly welcome applicants who would not find funding elsewhere.
