Unlocking the Power of Communities Mentoring Programme
*Now closed to new applications*
Thanks to players of the National Lottery, Historic Environment Scotland, the Pilgrim Trust and a legacy donation from the Industrial Buildings Preservation Trust we are launching a new support programme as a response to the challenges our members are facing because of the COVID-19 crisis.
Personalised Consultancy and Mentoring
The Heritage Trust Network includes a significant number of members and corporate supporters with a wealth of knowledge and expertise. Whatever challenges or issues you are currently facing, there will be others in the Network who are able and ready to help.
Through this new programme, members can apply for up to three days of consultancy covering the issues your organisation is facing right now as a result of the COVID-19 situation and to help you plan and adapt for the future.
From fundraising strategies to change management, business planning and more, we will put you in touch with the right person to help you through this period of uncertainty.
How to apply
Step 1: Complete the online application form below by 5pm 9 May 2020 (you can submit your application at any time before the deadline). It is a very simple and short application and the emphasis is on you letting us know what support you need.
Step 2: HTN core staff and Trustees will assess your application based on the information provided. The funding is limited, and therefore this will be a competitive process. However, we aim to fund as many members as our budget allows. If you are not successful we will refer you to online resources that will help you access the information you need.
Step 3: HTN will notify you of the outcome within five working days. If successful, you will be allocated a mentor who will make contact with you to discuss and agree the scope of support you need. Mentors will produce a short report at the end of the support and members will be asked to offer brief comments and feedback.
