Culture Central Mentoring Scheme

As part of Culture Central’s Coronavirus response, we are supporting individuals and organisations by facilitating a mentoring/buddy programme. We have set the scheme up in response to a number of enquiries from people who would value the opportunity to learn from people with experience in specific issues that are affecting them and their organisation in the current situation, including applying for ACE emergency funding.

We are now looking for people who would be willing to act as mentors, as well as people who are looking for support in any of the following areas:

  • Bid writing/fundraising (including applying for emergency funds)
  • Financial planning/budgeting
  • General coaching
  • Producing
  • Creating artistic product
  • Strategic planning/business plans
  • Digital technology
  • Marketing & communications
  • Other areas of support

A recent mentee said:

“a heartfelt thankyou for the mentoring support offered through Culture Central recently. My mentor was incredibly generous with her time in working with me to complete two emergency grant applications.”
