Accreditation Mentors

Accreditation Mentors provide specialist support with the Accreditation applications and returns. Arts Council England advises that all museums should have access to qualified professional staff for support in all aspects of Accreditation. For smaller museums, this can be an Accreditation Mentor who can provide specialist advice.

The East Midlands has over 30 mentors, volunteering their time to support the independent museums sector. This network brings together existing mentors, and anyone interested in becoming a mentor, and provides support and access to resources and information.

The network aims to meet at least once a year, and to signpost its members to relevant information and resources which will help them in their role.

The network is led by Accreditation Adviser, Heather Lomas. If you would like to join the network, please email Heather.
