The Clore Social Leadership Programme has announced its new group of fellows for its second year.

The 16 people have been identified as having leadership potential while working as staff or volunteers in the UK's third sector. They will receive training involving residential courses, mentoring and coaching, and an extended secondment.

The programme was established by the Clore Duffield Foundation, which will contribute £1.5m to the programme in its first three years.

Four specialist fellowships are backed by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, the RNIB and the Pears Foundation. Each fellowship comes with a bursary of up to £20,000.

Among the individuals selected are:

  • Caroline Huntley, an employment development officer for the RNIB, who takes the fellowship offered to a blind or partially sighted individual
  • Mark Richardson, chief executive of Fair Trade Wales and one of the founders of Aspire, a social enterprise that employs and trains homeless people
  • Kate Stanley, deputy director of the think tank the Institute for Public Policy Research
  • Yaseer Ahmed, chief officer at the Bolton Council of Mosques.
