Community and citizenship
About this theme
This theme covers all aspects of the functioning and fabric of society, including social cohesion, community resilience and development, human rights, inclusion, participation and equality. It is one of the eight universal themes which form our grantmaking framework and allow us to address every aspect of society. Fellows’ stories
A campaigner whose first success was having a crossing installed outside a school, is now running her own organisation committed to a new, community-based approach to bringing about change at a national level.

When Saeida Rouass applied for a Churchill Fellowship in 2019 to investigate the impact of violent extremism on women, in particular survivors of white supremacist groups and violence, she was surprised to find the connections between racially motivated violence and gender-based violence. The learnings from Saeida’s Fellowship, and 28 other Fellows, have gone on to help inform the Churchill Fellowship’s Migration report due to be published shortly.
