WINSTON CHURCHILL MEMORIAL TRUST
At ARF we are enthusiastic fans of the life-changing opportunities for medical and health workers (yes, that includes anyone working to help addicts recover) to go on Travelling Fellowships funded by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.
If you would like to be funded to travel overseas to look at best practice and innovative programmes in the wide field of medicine and health, apply now. Applications for travel in 2014 close on 24 September 2013 at 5pm. This year, the WCMT has partnered with The Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh.
Fellows gain experience abroad so that they can return to the UK and disseminate their new ideas for the improvement of their hospital, organisation or community. Successful applicants will receive an average grant of £6000, covering travel, food, accommodation and insurance for about six weeks overseas.
Each year WCTF awards over 120 Travelling Fellowships to UK citizens from all walks of life, across 10 varied categories. This year it hopes to award over 130 – a record number of opportunities.
See www.wcmt.org.uk for full details.
Or call 020-77991660.
A travelling sabbatical for those with experience, ambition and the desire to help others, will add real value to your skills and to your CV, as well as furthering your leadership and role model abilities.
Applications are judged purely on project merit, and this unique opportunity is available to adults of any age, gender, religion or ethnicity.
Among those travelling this year is Dr Tamasin Knight, travelling to the US to investigate alternative routes to mental health recovery.
