The programme, now in its third year, offers free support, advice and training to the leaders of health and wellbeing charities. To date, it has supported 120 voluntary and community sector (VCS) leaders. We are now offering a further 64 places on the 2019 programme.

The programme is open to leaders from all health and wellbeing charities, from small start-ups or support groups to major national organisations.

Successful applicants will be matched into pairs, with a consultant (an established charity leader), working with a partner (a leader who is seeking support). A distinctive aspect of the programme is that those providing the support are current leaders in the sector, who develop their leadership skills and receive training and supervision from The King’s Fund, while they are supporting another organisation.

There is no charge for participating on the programme, which is valued at £5,800 for each pair. It is funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund.

The deadline for applications is 30 November.https://www.kingsfund.org.uk/courses/cascading-leadership-programme
