Fellows Network

The Bridge Group Fellows Network recognises the contribution that a number of senior academics make to our work in a variety of different ways by: collaborating on research; sharing ideas and evidence at events; and providing informal expertise.

The Fellows are leading thinkers on a wide range of subjects relating to social mobility and play a key role in inspiring and challenging our thinking to ensure that our work is current, relevant, and has maximum impact.

The network is coordinated by Dr Kenton Lewis MBE, who is a senior researcher at the Bridge Group.
