The First EDP 2020 cohort under the new programme is made up of 63 organisations, who were accepted onto the programme in early 2020: 21 Homelessness, 16 Mental Health, 14 Equality, and 12 youth. We received a total of 150 applications and the overall success rate for applications was 42%.
Every region of England is represented overall, with two sectors (Homelessness and Mental Health) having at least one cohort member from each of the nine regions in their intakes.
In terms of diversity, the overall number of cohort members show a reasonable spread of leadership of people from different backgrounds:
|All applicants||Successful applicants|
|Women-led||63 (42%)||29 (46%)|
|BME-led||23 (15%)||12 (19%)|
|Disability-led||29 (19%)||11 (17%)|
|LGBT-led||19 (13%)||10 (16%)|
Please use the tabs to explore each of the cohort members and organisations we are supporting across each sector partner, and hear more about what they do and their hopes for how EDP will help them to maximise their impact.
