Charlie Walker, who finished his last three-year term as a BEARR Trustee in October 2023, continues to support BEARR’s work as our Academic Advisor. Charlie leads a panel of academic experts to advise BEARR on small grants themes, conference and webinar content, and the design of CSO surveys. As Co-Director of the University of Southampton Centre for Eastern European and Eurasian Studies, he continues to publish widely on a range of themes related to welfare and wellbeing across the region covered by BEARR.
