MENTORING FOR BUSINESSES By: Gordon

The government drive aims to:
• Help people find a business mentor
• Increase the number of mentors available, and
• Improve information about mentoring to help UK businesses to grow.
Work began in July last year when the Department for Business and the British Bankers’ Association (BBA) launched mentorsme.co.uk, the national mentoring portal. Since then, the number of mentoring organisations on the portal has risen from 42 to over 100. Through them, there is now access to around 11,000 mentors. The site is proving popular: the BBA’s statistics show there were over 100,000 visits to the site in the last year.
Over 12,000 people have now volunteered as business mentors, signing up to the Small Firms Enterprise Development Initiative’s (SFEDI) Get Mentoring scheme. Over 7,000 people have been trained. They are now being encouraged to become part of mentoring organisations on the mentorsme portal and start mentoring through their own networks
