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.

At SMN, our vision is:  

“Effective, high quality mentoring, recognised, valued and available to all.”  

And we exist:  

  • To support the development and delivery of mentoring projects across Scotland 
  • To deliver services that make better mentors and increase the impact of high quality mentoring 
  • To work with a wide range of projects across all sectors and to be their voice in influencing policy and decision-makers 

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