Show your support for the Daphne Jackson Trust during Small Charities Week (16th-21st June)!

12 June 2014 | News news

The Daphne Jackson Trust is a small charity that makes a big difference to individuals wishing to return to their careers after a break of 2 years or more. But the impact of the charity extends far beyond the 250 individuals we have helped to return to their careers, to date. Every Daphne Jackson Fellow is striving to answer key research questions in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. The outcomes of this research could in future help tackle some of the major issues facing the world today.

Please show your support for the Daphne Jackson Trust during Small Charities Week (16th – 21st June 2014) by posting a message saying why you love the Daphne Jackson Trust on the Small Charities Week Facebook page. Also, if you are on Twitter, please tweet saying why you love the Daphne Jackson Trust and include #ILoveSmallCharities and @DaphneJacksonTr in the tweet.

All messages posted between 16th June and 21st June on Twitter and Facebook will be counted and the small charity with the most messages of support on each platform will win a £200 prize!

The Daphne Jackson Trust is a small charity (annual turnover <£1M) that partners with sponsoring organisations and universities which in turn, financially support Daphne Jackson Fellows. On our website, you can read testimonials and case-studies from current and former Daphne Jackson Fellows who are returning to a diverse range of careers and carrying out research that could one day, for example, help improve the way we diagnose and fight diseases, provide new transport methods for people with disabilities and identify new sustainable energy solutions.

The retraining Fellowships we offer are part-time over two years and give women and men who’ve taken a break for family, caring or health reasons, the confidence and skills they need to make a successful return to their chosen career.

To reach out and engage with individuals who are considering returning to research, and to provide networking and training opportunities for our Fellows, the Trust relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to make donations, offer their time and expertise, and provide free facilities. It is this invaluable support that makes it possible for the Daphne Jackson Trust to ‘fight above its weight’ and make a bigger impact!
