Churchill FellowshipThe Churchill Fellowship

The Churchill Fellowship is a national network of 4,000 dynamic individuals who are inspiring change in every part of UK life.

They may be a nurse promoting mental health in the NHS, a scientist monitoring pollution in the oceans, or a community leader training young entrepreneurs, but they are all united by a common mission: to develop new solutions for today’s key challenges, based on learning from the world.

“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

The living legacy of Sir Winston Churchill

The Fellowship was created as the living legacy of Sir Winston Churchill for the nation, aiming to honour his memory by reflecting his unique contribution to national life.

Conceived with Sir Winston’s approval, the Fellowship was launched on his death in 1965 and funded by an outpouring of public donations from across the country. In keeping with Sir Winston’s own spirit, it encourages UK citizens with passion and potential to be curious about the world, to explore new ideas and insights overseas, and to use those experiences to create change in every part of society.

I feel extremely fortunate and thankful to the  Churchill Fellowship for their generous support towards my travel and work. The opportunity they have given me has been exceptional and I am truly grateful. Through my research on refugee integration during these tough times, I have gained valuable insights which I want to share with other voluntary groups.

My aim is to create a helpful resource that can benefit those who are working towards refugee integration. If you have a similar project in mind, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be more than happy to offer my advice and support wherever I can.

As Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” This highlights the importance of giving back to the community and supporting those who are in need. By working towards refugee integration, we are not only helping the refugees but also enriching our own lives and communities.
