Aims

Vision

LINKnet's vision is to maximise representation of minority ethnic people including refugees and asylum seekers in further and higher education, employment and public and civic life of Scottish society through structured mentoring programmes in order to help the establishment of an equitable society.

Mission

LINKnet's mission is to provide one to one mentoring support to minority ethnic individuals including refugees and asylum seekers in their pursuit of employment, education and personal development in order to improve their quality of life. Mentoring is offered on the strands of academic, career and personal development. Through individual development the project hopes to achieve a collective impact on the minority ethnic community as a whole in their struggle to be better represented.

Aims

LINKnet aims to:

  • Eliminate/reduce inequality and disadvantage.
  • Drive up public sector performance on equality and improve access to and benefit from public services by taking public services as formal partners to LINKnet's mentoring programme.
  • Foster integration and promote dialogue and understanding between communities.
  • Develop the awareness and capacity of both majority and minority communities to engage with this agenda, to tackle racism and other disadvantages, promote equality by raising awareness of barriers to development, cultural diversity, community contributions to society and the economy through LINKnet's mentor training, mentee induction, information provision and public events.
