Clore Social has announced the names of new participants on its 2020 Cobseo Emerging Leader Programme, an intensive six-month leadership development journey designed to strengthen networks within the Armed Forces Charity Sector and build agile, resilient, and generous leadership capabilities…

The 2020 cohort consists of leaders working across a variety of Armed Forces Charity Sector organisations, including SSAFA, Veterans Growth, Royal Navy Royal Marines Children’s Fund, Welsh Local Government Association, Naval Families Federation, ABF The Soldiers Charity, Blesma, Combat Stress, and more.

Building on a number of years’ partnership with Clore Social Leadership and Cobseo, the Forces in Mind Trust are proud to be supporting and sponsoring this leadership development programme for the third consecutive year.

This partnership has been established to help increase the sector’s effectiveness and ultimately improve outcomes for the organisations’ beneficiaries. This is the innovative and system changing approach to which the partners are committed.

Commenting on this year’s cohort, Ray Lock CBE, Chief Executive of the Forces in Mind Trust said: “We are very pleased to be supporting this excellent programme for another year. It brings together some of the best emerging Leaders in the Armed Forces Charity Sector, offering them access to a bespoke training and development programme.

“Nobody should lead alone, and this programme allows its Fellows to develop a mutually supportive network across the sector. By convening these emerging leaders on such a training programme, we are proactively investing in the future capacity of the Armed Forces Charity Sector.”

Drawing on all aspects of Clore Social’s Social Leaders Capabilities Framework, this intensive leadership development journey aims to develop inspirational, empowering, courageous, focused, passionate and generous leadership capabilities.

Participants will learn through real-world challenges, while using a variety of techniques – all designed to equip them with the tools necessary to develop their skills and effectively tackle the Armed Forces Charity Sector’s challenges.
