GET INFORMED: Get a mentor

Throughout the year, GET INFORMED will be offering 100 ‘financial/investment expertise’ mentors to help build board skills.

If you're a board member considering social investment and would like the one-to-one support of a peer to help you think through the options, you could be eligible for a free GET INFORMED mentor.

You will be matched with someone who has a good knowledge of social investment and understands the roles and responsibilities of charity trustees and social enterprise board directors with regards to finance, investment and associated risks. They will provide at least 8 hours of support to you over a 6 to 12 month period. Where possible we will match you with someone close to you, but if not the mentoring may take place over telephone, skype or email.

Mentoring is peer support in the form of sharing knowledge, skills, experience, opinion, informal advice. Please remember that it does not constitute professional advice which will need to be sought independently to ensure expert guidance pertaining to any financial transaction or decision making.
