A website has been launched to provide unemployed people across London and East Anglia with a mentor who can offer support, advice and guidance to help them back into work.
The inspiration behind The Mentor Hive was to find a way to match people that have work or business experience to individuals that are out of work and need all the support they can get to help them come off benefits.
The site has been launched by Ixion, an Essex-based not-for-profit organisation that helps thousands of people across the region back into work or self employment.
John Govett, Ixion Group chief executive officer, said: "The Mentor Hive was created to provide an easy way for businesses and their staff to get involved in volunteering and put their skills to new use and help those that are starting a new business for the first time."
