Rt Hon Lord Young

“I had a mentor when I started my business and he saved me more than once. I hope National Mentoring Day will encourage more people to act as a mentor. I know as I have acted as a mentor many times and it’s very rewarding to both parties.”

Lord Young – Formerly – Secretary of State for Trade & Industry, Enterprise Adviser to the British Prime Minister, President of the Institute of Directors</p”>

Unprecedented levels of mentoring are urgently needed to reach as many vulnerable, disadvantaged and disengaged people of all ages, and for communities to thrive and businesses to survive. National Mentoring Day plays a key part in making this happen, but we need your support to do so.

Patrons have an opportunity to meet high-profile senior executives that we work with from all areas of media, business, education, society, and government.

We welcome Patrons to share their experience, ideas, and passion for mentoring on a national level. Patrons can be involved in PR and media opportunities to influence positive change in mentoring across the world. Patrons can be involved as little or as much as they want or remain anonymous.

Your business or brand will be aligned with a globally recognised organisation with a history of making a difference. Benefit from our extensive national PR and media coverage, high-profile network, alongside influential positive PR messaging online and offline.

A ‘Changemaker Patronship’ is a great Corporate Social Responsibility opportunity. Solutions can be tailored to specific sectors or groups and employees can take part in change making activities and events.

Companies or individuals can become a Patron. We invite you to enquire about a patronship if you share our passion for mentoring, making a difference or wish to leave a legacy for future generations.
