Announcing new initiative to support leaders in Wandsworth

We are delighted to announce our new initiative delivered in partnership with the Battersea Arts Centre which aims to support leaders working in the social sector in Wandsworth.

The Wandsworth Innovation, Skills and Empowerment (WISE) Programme aims to support the development and diversity of Voluntary and Community sector organisations based in the borough, by enhancing their capacity to achieve their mission. Sixty participants will be recruited to the programme which will run over three years. The WISE programme will offer a range of leadership development support, including group and individual learning activities, action-learning sets, coaching and a mentor programme. Participants will also be involved in a Local Challenge project, which will enable them to identify needs in the community and to achieve improvements over the course of the programme.

The project has been jointly funded by the Wimbledon Foundation and Battersea Power Station Foundation.

Shaks Ghosh, Chief Executive of Clore Social Leadership said,

“This project builds on the success Clore Social has had with other place-based leadership programmes which have helped social leaders to make a greater impact both within their organisations and also on their communities. I’m confident the leadership capability of leaders working across the social sector in Wandsworth will be strengthened as a result.”

"Battersea Arts Centre's mission is to inspire people to take risks to shape the future, and we are thrilled to be working with Clore Social to deliver this innovative programme for the next generation of local social leaders. This programme builds on our experience of capacity building with the Local Roots charity network, and supporting the next generation of social entrepreneurs through The Agency programme. I'm excited to see the great positive change in Wandsworth that the participants on the WISE programme will no doubt deliver.”
