When we put the word out about The Multiplier in October 2020, we were inspired by the quality of the 129 applicants. It was heartening to see so many people nurturing so many wonderful communities all across the UK. From the 129 applicants, we brought together 10 local leaders from Belfast to Birmingham, Cardiff to Cornwall, London to Liverpool – to adapt, grow and multiply their initiatives.
We shared with them our knowledge, mistakes, challenges and learning as well as our contacts and platform, to help them drive connection and togetherness in their own ways in their own communities. We also invested in, supported and connected these exciting social entrepreneurs, community organisers and people working in systems to deepen and broaden their impact to influence policy and make systemic change. Over the course of the next four years, The Cares Family will support another 40 leaders to help them deepen their impact too.
We’re so proud of our first cohort, what they’ve already achieved and what we know they’ll achieve together over the coming years. Please see below to get to know our 2021 Multipliers.
