Enterprise: supporting social impact

This award category

We are seeking applications that explore enterprise as a positive force for social good.

This includes projects around enterprise-driven solutions for social issues, or for innovation and development within charities and social purpose projects that increase earned income and enhance sustainability and autonomy.

We are interested in applications from people working in:

  • Organisations with a social purpose, including charities.
  • Commercial organisations embedding social good across their working practices.
  • Individuals with a passion to find positive social solutions.

This category is in partnership with The Rank Foundation.

“We are delighted to be working with the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust to provide opportunity for people to explore the potential that enterprise can bring to the social sector, to think in a more entrepreneurial way about how they deliver their services or fund their organisations and for those working in commercial organisations as they look to embed or integrate social benefit across their working practices.”  David Sanderson, Chief Executive of The Rank Foundation

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.
