Skills Sharing and Mentoring for Small Charities

Jul 10, 2017 | VCS

The Small Charities Coalition free skills sharing and mentoring service aims to find you a supporter with the experience and knowledge you need.
The Small Charities Coalition
“The free skills sharing and mentoring service aims to find you a supporter with the experience and knowledge you need. These supporters mentor, advise and guide you through a particular challenge in your work. This can be anything for a one-off phone call to find an answer to a governance related question, or a year-long relationship helping your charity build and implement a business plan.
How it works
Support either comes from a fellow small charity or from an individual volunteering their time and expertise.
Matches could simply be a one-off phone call or continue for a couple of years. They can be remote or face-to-face.
The service is based on charities helping and supporting each other. That is why we ask all charities receiving help to be willing to share their skills & knowledge with another small charity in return. Our free skills sharing and mentoring service allows you to get things done with the help and support of someone who has been there and done it before. The benefits of skills sharing and mentoring include:
  • Learning new skills
  • One-off or continued support to suit your needs
  • Building your confidence
  • Getting fresh perspectives on your organisation’s way of doing things
  • Building your contacts and networks
  • Reassurance that you are headed in the right direction
  • It’s free!
Is it right for you?
We try to make the service as flexible as possible to provide for charities in all circumstances. However, to take part, you need to be able to do the following:
Give it time
For your match to work, you will need to set-aside time. Do have a think if this is feasible before submitting your request.
Make use of the support
We endeavour to match you with the right person to advise you in your work. It is up to you to see the match through and put their advice into action.
Help one another
This service is based on the ethos of charities supporting charities. We ask that all charities taking part are willing to share their skills and knowledge with another small charity at some point.
Why get involved
When you’re ready to get help from the skills sharing and mentoring service, click on sign up. If you have any further questions please call us on 0207 358 6490 or email help@smallcharities.org.uk.”
