Mentoring Programme

Our NCVO approved mentoring programme supports people working or volunteering in voluntary and community organisations by providing one-to-one support from experienced, volunteer mentors. It will help you to improve your practice, develop your leadership skills, and help you to tackle challenging issues you are facing within your organisation.
