Applications are now open for the first cohort of Acumen Fellows in the UK


Acumen has launched their first UK Fellowship focused on empowering role models who are building solutions that challenge the status quo, bridge our divides and create a more inclusive United Kingdom.

Over the coming months, Acumen will select their first 20 Fellows from across sector, place and background - and equip them with the knowledge, skills and community to accelerate and sustain their impact. An overview of the programme and what it takes to be a Fellow can be found here

Fellows come from all walks of life and are embedded across place, sector and system. They have all demonstrated a commitment to tackling inequality & injustice in the UK, and are building solutions bred out of hope and possibility.

If you’re ready to lead alongside a cohort of like-minded builders, then answer the call and begin your application today. Learn more and apply at (deadline 31st May).


Who are the bold builders you know who would benefit from the Acumen Fellows Programme? We would love to connect with them to better understand their challenges and how the Fellows Programme could accelerate their work. Please share details of the Fellowship with them! 

Additionally, you can share their name, organisation/movement and a short overview of why they would make a great Fellow in an email to We will get in touch to facilitate an introduction and send a personal invite for the Fellows Programme.
