About the opportunity

Applications are now open to take part in the Connect ‘Walking in Their Shoes’ programme.

The purpose is to provide a platform for cross-boundary knowledge sharing where peers working on similar challenges can gain an insight into the different cultures, constraints and opportunities their counterparts face.

Taking part will involve being matched with a peer from a different sector or profession based on shared interests. Each pair will commit to spending a minimum of a day walking in each other’s shoes over a six month period.

With peers matched from a wide range of sectors including local authorities, the NHS and VCSE, this is a unique opportunity to expand your network, see things differently and build trusting connections across boundaries.
