The BBA is the UK’s leading association for the banking sector, representing the interests of more than 240 member organisations with a worldwide presence in 180 countries. The membership brings together banks of all shapes and sizes, including retail banks, wholesale institutions, challenger banks and private banks.
Free access to a comprehensive list of quality business mentoring organisations across Britain. It is operated by the Better Business Finance programme, set up by five high street banks: Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group, Royal Bank of Scotland and Santander. The initiative is overseen by the BBA.
Any UK business can use the service, but start-ups, entrepreneurs and businesses tackling new challenges tend to find the scheme most beneficial. An easy-to-use search engine allows you to refine your search according to what stage your business is at and where it is located.
Business mentors will normally offer wide-ranging business experience or expertise in a particular area, such as finance, marketing or exports. They will act as your trusted confidant over a flexible period of time, although you should be clear on what you can and cannot expect from them.
