Become a Village SOS mentor

Village SOS are looking for mentors with experience developing
community projects

Village SOS is a Big Lottery funded campaign to help rural community
projects survive and thrive. The campaign aims to help and inspire
rural communities across the UK to start their own social enterprises
– from setting up a shop or saving a pub to opening a café or cinema.

We’re looking for mentors with skills and experience that can benefit
rural community projects, in particular:

People currently or previously involved with other successful
community projects that want to share their experience
Experts or specialists that are happy to offer their skills as part of
the support available through Village SOS

Anyone is welcome to sign up as a mentor. The position is a voluntary
one, but your travel costs for project activities will be paid by
Village SOS.

Find out more about being a Village SOS mentor in Wales.

Cyfle i fod yn un o fentoriaid Pentref SOS

Mae Pentref SOS yn chwilio am fentoriaid sydd â phrofiad o ddatblygu
prosiectau cymunedol

Ymgyrch a ariennir gan y Gronfa Loteri Fawr yw Pentref SOS i helpu
prosiectau cymunedol gwledig i oroesi a ffynnu. Nod yr ymgyrch yw
helpu ac ysbrydoli cymunedau cefn gwlad ledled y Deyrnas Unedig i
ddechrau eu mentrau cymdeithasol eu hunain – o sefydlu siop neu achub
tafarn i agor caffi neu sinema.

Rydym yn chwilio am fentoriaid sydd â sgiliau a phrofiad a all fod o
fudd i brosiectau cymunedol gwledig, yn benodol:

Pobl sy’n rhan, neu wedi bod yn rhan, o brosiectau cymunedol
llwyddiannus eraill sydd nawr am rannu eu profiad
Arbenigwyr sy’n fodlon cynnig eu sgiliau fel rhan o’r cymorth sydd ar

Mae croeso i unrhyw un gofrestru i fod yn fentor. Rôl wirfoddol yw hi,
ond bydd Pentref SOS yn talu’ch costau teithio ar gyfer
gweithgareddau’r prosiect.
