CSCLeaders Alumni projects: Update August 2013

The CSCLeaders 2013 Alumni group are continuing to build on the relationships formed during their shared experience at CSCLeaders and there are various ideas and projects developing as a result of CSCLeaders.

Here are just some of the projects under development:

As a result of CSCLeaders, Dalwardin Babu (retired Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police) - along with fellow CSCLeaders alumni - has set up two initiatives:

Commonwealth Police Association

The Commonwealth Police Association addresses the need for an umbrella organisation for police officers across the Commonwealth . The first project for this group is working with colleagues on a plan to increase the capacity and resilience of faith communities in the UK, particularly around places of worship. This has been developed following the 300% increase in Islamophobia and other attacks on Gurdwaras and temples across Britain in 2013.

SpringBooks

Springbooks is an educational project to improve library facilities in township schools. The group will collect books in the UK, initially from Mosques and Synagogues, and then deliver them to schools in South African Townships. They have already collected 350 books from fellow CSCLeaders Alumni and are confident that they can collect thousands from across the country as the project develops.

Subject to sponsorship for book storage and transportation, the group aim to set up a library in the Alexandra Township, Johannesburg.

Common Age - Commonwealth Association for the Ageing

An organisation set up by Andrew Larpent, CEO of Southern Cross Care (Australia), following CSCLeaders to advance the interests of older people throughout the Commonwealth by building capability and capacity in health and care services. Its objective is to promote and disseminate learning experience and best practice in aged car service design, development, provision and assurance throughout the Commonwealth with the purpose of improving the quality of life for older citizens in Commonwealth countries. Common Age will be formally launched at the ACASA Conference in Melbourne 10-13 November 2013. Find out more: www.commage.org/
