“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.
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!
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:
For your match to work, you will need to set-aside time. Do have a think if this is feasible before submitting your request.
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.
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.
