Overseas research grants are soon to available to anyone involved in emergency and crisis management, and others, interested in investigating and creating new techniques for the prevention and handling of and recovery from public emergencies.

The grants are to be available through the Churchill Fellowships in Emergency Response, which is currently accepting proposals from all level of seniority – either intended for operational, tactical or strategic implementation. The Churchill Fellowships, which are available in 12 fields of interest, including the Emergency response category, will fund dedicated and dynamic individuals to research innovative ideas and best practice overseas, before bringing their global insights back to the UK and making change happen in their professions and communities.

Julia Weston, Chief Executive of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, said: “Our emergency services face enormous challenges, from terrorist incidents to knife-based crime and natural and man-made disasters. Just as significant is the challenge of looking after their own mental and physical wellbeing. We are funding Churchill Fellowships to find inspiration from the world’s best projects and practice for this important area.”
