mentorsme.co.uk is Britain’s first online gateway for small and medium-sized enterprises looking for mentoring services.
The free site offers businesses access to a list of quality-assured business mentoring organisations across Britain. An easy-to-use search engine allows businesses to refine their searches according to the life stage of their business and their location in Britain.
Our objective is to help businesses find a mentoring organisation to suit their needs in a fast and easy way.
The site also allows business professionals to offer their services as a business mentor via the mentoring organisations listed. Aspiring mentors may want to work in a particular area of Britain and have a particular area of expertise to offer. Our search engine allows them to locate mentoring organisations that are the closest match to their profile.
mentorsme.co.uk also aims to raise awareness about the benefits of business mentoring through its library of online resources, which includes articles about mentoring and case studies of successful business mentoring relationships.
mentorsme.co.uk is operated by the Business Finance Taskforce, which has been set up by the British Bankers’ Association and is made up of five banks: Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group, Royal Bank of Scotland and Santander. The taskforce was established to help businesses access the finance they need to grow. The website is now administered by UK Finance.
The Portal is intended to provide interested parties with a single, easy to use search engine to locate organisations that provide mentor services to small businesses and those interested in starting a business.
Our aim is to provide users with access to all existing mentoring organisations and networks under one umbrella, whilst not duplicating or competing with the identities, relationships and services that such organisations already provide.
If your organisation is interested in joining the portal please read the guidance notes below before completing the questionnaire.
Your application will be assessed by SFEDI.
SFEDI was established in 1996 as the Enterprise Standards Setting Body, and is responsible for researching, developing, maintaining and quality assuring individual and organisational standards for Business Mentoring. SFEDI has been working to develop a quality assurance framework for Mentoring Organisations appearing on mentorsme.co.uk and have now been appointed to carry out assessment against these standards.
