This report documents the work undertaken as part of my Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Design Leadership Fellowship between January 2017 and December 2019. Over the course of 36 months, I have conducted a series of events and activities aimed at enhancing the design research community across the UK. This work has included organising and holding a variety of workshops developed to support the next generation of design researchers in the UK, writing a first AHRC funding application, UKRI Future Leaders Fellowships' workshops for design researchers, two international Does Design Care...? workshops, a number of invited lectures and conference presentations, and two Design Research for Change showcase exhibitions at the London Design Fair. Moreover, early in my Leadership Fellowship, I conducted a survey of the UK's design research community eliciting responses from over 300 participants from a wide range of career stages and design disciplines.
