Request a Mentor

If you would like to apply for the support of a Dormen mentor, please complete the following form and press the send button. The more information you can provide at this stage, the faster and better we should be able to help you.

If you are planning or just starting a new business (with less than 6 months trading), it is probably premature to ask for a mentor's support, and your needs may be best served by attending some business training. Free two-day Start-Up Business courses are available in Dorset from the Dorset Growth Hub ( or 03454 586 480).

Please note that clients are asked to pay a one-off, non-refundable, admin charge of £200 for being linked to a mentor for up to 12 months. This is a contribution to the cost of running the Dormen service. However, we will not ask you to pay until you have met your mentor and are happy to proceed.

After we receive your form, we will contact you to discuss your application in more detail.
