The Jellicoe Community
In the 1920s, Fr Basil Jellicoe challenged the consciences of the rich - to transform the slums near Euston Station. The quality housing which was built still benefits low-income households. He did all this as the “Missioner” of Magdalen College, Oxford. Inspired by his story, Jellicoe Internships enable students to spend time in CTC's partner congregations, deepening their engagement in community organising for social justice (e.g. in the Living Wage Campaign). These paid placements are for a month in the summer or part-time for a full year.
Out of these internships has grown a wider Jellicoe Community involved in prayer, reflection and action in London and Oxford. This has led an increasing number of students to get involved in action against poverty pay in their Universities and cities. The University of East London is now a Living Wage employer - and Jellicoe Community members Sarah Santhosham, Jonathan Goddard and David Messling are playing a leading role in the campaign to make Oxford's Colleges and Libraries Living Wage employers.
