Organisations across the region are being urged to take advantage of a mentoring programme being offered through a South Yorkshire-based law firm.

The Wosskow Brown Foundation, which launched in 2014 and pledged to help 300 businesses, charities, social enterprises and sports clubs over the next five years, is appealing for groups to come forward to apply for assistance under its second WB100 initiative.

Richard Caborn, former industry and sports minister and driving force behind the Olympic Legacy Park at Don Valley, recently called the initiative ‘a model for the UK to follow.’ One company to benefit during the first phase of the programme was Pulse Health, Fitness & Wellbeing, which provides sessions to more than 150 care homes and schools in Yorkshire.

Pulse HFW director Chris Chapman said: “The Foundation has given us unlimited contacts with such as solicitors, accountants, financial advisors and many more - along with general and strategic support on how to scale up our business.”

Programme director Jim Lawson said: “Our offer is to provide 20 hours of free support to local organisations to assist them to achieve their ambitions for growth.” Contact jim@wosskowbrownfoundation.org.uk for more details.
