Fellows' Online Networks

Fellows' Online Networks

Introduction

Whatever your chosen cause or current activity, there will be other Fellows in your field or your region who would like to know what you’re doing and help you to progress it. If you would like to tap into this community of kindred spirits, you can join one of our Fellows’ Online Networks.

These easy-to-use platforms allow you to connect easily and directly with over 1,300 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.

Joining a network

We connect all new Fellows to relevant Online Networks shortly after their award. But if you have not been connected, or would like to change which Networks you belong to, please contact Esmeralda Gambelli, who manages the Networks, on Esmeralda.Gambelli@churchillfellowship.org.
