Be a mentor

Be a mentor

Our mentoring programme is a leadership development programme for people working or volunteering in community and voluntary organisations. We support leaders and emerging leaders to grow and realise their potential, with the aim of strengthening organisations and our sector.

As a mentor on the programme, you volunteer your time to walk alongside your mentee, offering insight into the challenges that they might be facing. By giving time for reflection and planning and holding the ‘thread’ of the conversation, you will help your mentee to grow and develop.

A huge thank you

This programme is delivered by people who believe in the power of mentoring and who want to see our sector thrive. We have a dedicated team of volunteer mentors, who give their time and expertise willingly and freely. There are mentors who go the extra mile by volunteering to support behind the scenes too.

Because of everyone’s commitment and contributions, we provide our mentoring programme to an approved standard.
