Objectives

To support voluntary sector leaders with organisational issues or strategy via a free scheme, provided by volunteer senior managers and specialists. This is a FREE service to charities, community groups and not-for-profit concerns across Sussex.

Activities

This service is for anyone who has a leadership role within a charity, community group or not-for-profit business, and who has either a specific issue or general strategic directional issue that they’d welcome support with.

A mentor will encourage and help a mentee to think through issues and assist them to come to their own solutions and conclusions. The scheme has an extensive team of experienced mentors, most of whom have held senior roles within their chosen field.

Charity mentors offers short-term strategic support usually between a three and four-month term. It costs nothing other than a commitment and energy levels from the mentee.

Some areas where mentors have helped previously include:

  • producing fundraising plans
  • identifying resource requirement
  • assisting with job descriptions
  • working through trustee issues
  • guiding the production of strategic plans and board presentations
  • focusing managers on short-term priorities
  • working through financial structures and reporting issues
  • helping to set priorities in legal disputes

…and generally supporting and encouraging managers in clarifying options and articulating decisions.
