Have you ever been stuck with a knotty issue that you just can't unpick? With the Knowledge and Skills Exchange programme, you can get help from someone who has ‘been there, done that’.
“One of the best things is access to a fantastic and widespread network of likeminded people and organisations who are all pushing boundaries and achieving".

The Knowledge and Skills Exchange is a networking programme designed to connect you with other organisations to learn from their experience and vice versa. You can receive up to £500 to help you visit another member.

Why you should take part in a Knowledge and Skills Exchange

We’ll match you to people and organisations based on experience, background and interest. You’ll make practical and meaningful connections to help you work on a specifc problem, find out what works (and what doesn’t!) and get the confidence to feel like “yeah, I can do that!”

Face to face visits are encouraged to help you “look up and look out” to identify new opportunities and solutions. The Knowledge and Skills Exchange programme supports one-off exchanges and ongoing peer mentoring, depending on your needs. We’ll help you to identify exchange partners based on what you’d like to learn about. We’ll also discuss your idea in more detail with you if you’re not sure what you need.

The programme is always open – to ensure you can access specific support when you need it.
