Linknet Mentoring Ltd is the first and the only direct mentoring organisation that is established to serve minority ethnic communities in Edinburgh, the Lothians, Scottish Borders and Fife. It was established in 2000 to serve disadvantaged ethnic minorities in their pursuit of development. Over the years thousands have taken part in various mentoring programmes, education and employment mentoring being the core programme.
We provide one-to-one mentoring support to minority ethnic individuals including refugees and asylum seekers in their pursuit of employment, education and personal development in order to improve the quality of life. Mentoring is offered on the strands of academic, career and personal development. Through individual development the project hopes to achieve a collective impact on the minority ethnic community as a whole in their struggle to be better represented.
