The Multiplier is a brand new programme helping people to develop their own bridge-building initiatives in their own communities in their own ways. Over the next five years, the partnership between The Cares Family and UnLtd will support 50 leaders who are building connections across divides in their neighbourhoods to adapt and grow, building capacity and changing lives. In this first year, the eight-month programme will include leadership workshops, coaching, storytelling and networking. They’re looking for 10 inclusive, thoughtful, ambitious Multipliers to join that first cohort.
At The Cares Family, we know from experience that people build agency through local, mutually beneficial relationships that help people feel valued and visible. And we know that it’s people being with people that will ultimately avert the triple loneliness crisis.
Multipliers will be people responding to the huge challenges of our time. You may have set up a Mutual Aid group during the pandemic and now want to harness the energy in your community to create solidarity and support that endures. Maybe you’re leading a movement that brings people together to tackle racism in your hometown. Or maybe you have a nascent organisation which is bringing older and younger people together in your own way – and you need support to take your idea to the next level.
The Deadline is Tuesday 3rd November at 11am – https://www.thecaresfamily.org.uk/the-multiplier
