Its time to consider applying for a Churchill Fellowship -I would like you to encourage everyone to apply.
“These are life-changing grants, enabling people to travel the world researching a cause that’s close to their heart, meeting the foremost practitioners and seeing the best projects, anywhere in any country.” – Julia Weston, Chief Executive.
in 2004 I was fortunate to travel to America through this fellowship and studied the management and treatment of anger this link is to my final report. It was a life changing experience and I spent a month in New York city working with domestic violence support, treatment and enforcement teams.

My primary purpose of travelling to America was to gain knowledge into how other individuals and organisations work with anger. I was especially interested to see if they had developed techniques, which combine counselling with other complimentary therapies in order to develop a more holistic approach. I was curious to see how a countries value system, cultural beliefs and experiences shape programmes to end domestic violence. The report aimed to provide a personal account of my experience from the travelling fellowship in addition to comments from people I met, lessons learnt and ideas for the future.
Do not delay as applications close on 17th September.
