If you would like to join one of the Eyes Wide Opened programmes please complete our downloadable application form.


We've come up with a few questions. We're not claiming that 'this will only take you 5 minutes'. In fact, the more time you put into it, the more it will show in your answers.

We want to support those who need EWO the most so please help us understand why this is important to you.

Enjoy what you write. Be honest and don't hold back. What we're looking for is a seriousness of intent, an energy of purpose and perhaps a realisation of where your specific challenge/s might lie. We’ve put some word count constraints to help you focus your thoughts:


  1. Describe the facts of your current situation. (max 50 words)
  2. How do you feel about it? (max 100 words)
  3. What is holding you back? (max 100 words)
  4. What's the best bit of advice you've been given recently and who gave it to you? (max 50 words)
  5. Give us an example, in the form of a short story, of when you were at your best recently. Any situation counts - at work, at home, a sporting achievement, supporting a friend, an emergency, etc. (max 200 words)
  6. Why do you need EWO? (max 100 words)


Please use the downloadable EWO application form.


Please send your completed form back to You will receive an email confirmation that we've received your application. We will confirm places as soon as we can, leaving you plenty of time to do your pre work.
