Fellows' online Networks
How can I use the Fellows’ online Networks?
Churchill Fellows are part of a national network of change makers bringing global insights and practical solutions to every part of UK society. Whatever your chosen cause or current activity, there will be other Fellows from your field or your region who would love to know what you’re doing and help you to progress it.
If you’d like to tap into this community of kindred spirits, you can join one of our online Networks. These easy-to-use platforms allow you to connect easily and directly with over 3,000 other Churchill Fellows. Here you will be able to share news, exchange ideas, seek help, collaborate or simply meet online with interested Fellows. And if you would like to organise an event for your Network, we can contribute towards the costs.
Organising a Network event
Joining a network
We connect all new Fellows to relevant online Networks shortly after their award. But if you have not been connected up, or would like to change what you belong to, please get in touch and tell us what you’d like to do.
What Networks can I join?
We offer two types of Networks:
- Fellows’ Local Networks: our Local Networks are based around UK regions and nations. Here you will be able to connect with others in your area, share news, seek advice, collaborate on projects or events, or simply meet online with your local community of Churchill Fellows. These Networks are being launched during March 2021 and all Fellows are being contacted and invited to join theirs in the course of this month.
- Fellows’ Thematic Networks: our Thematic Networks are based around specific subjects or professional sectors. They match our eight universal themes. Here you will be able to share subject-specific news and collaborate with other Fellows in your field. We also post topic-relevant information (such as funding opportunities and upcoming events) into these Networks.
Churchill Fellows are a nationwide community and we have online Local Networks for every part of the UK. There are 12 Local Networks across the UK and you are welcome to join more than one.
