Aims and Objectives

We want to provide a distinctively Scottish perspective on mentoring, which is developed and sustained through co-operation and partnership between mentoring providers and users at a national, local and thematic level and policy/decision makers, funders and the academic community.

The overarching aims of Scottish Mentoring Network are:

  • To foster a community of good practice in mentoring in Scotland
  • To raise awareness and promote the work of Scottish Mentoring Network and its members
  • To provide a national forum that will influence the development of mentoring across all sectors and respond to/inform policy, decision makers and funders in Scotland

SMN is an incorporated, not for profit, membership organisation. As such it operates according to a Memorandum and Articles of Association. SMN is also a charity registered in Scotland.
