Online mentoring plan lands EU money

Participation for Change programme opens

The first major project of a new international network of voluntary sector umbrella bodies will be an international online mentoring programme.

The European Network of National Associations, which was launched last year by a group of umbrella bodies including the NCVO, has won EU funding for its Participation for Change programme.

Mentoring will be available in collaboration, HR, fundraising and membership development for at least 50 organisations from the UK, Poland, Germany, Estonia and Slovenia.

The programme will be open for applications after a mentors conference in Berlin on Sunday. The mentors, who will be from front-line organisations in the countries involved, will be available online at certain times until November.

Oli Henman, UK and international campaigns manager at the NCVO, said the programme could help European organisations share their experience without having to go to Brussels.
