    Not in the UK, but It's an American based organization called "NYC Salt" - https://www.nycsalt.org/ The organization is in NYC that helps the city's youth find their creative potential in the visual arts. It also gives them the resources, mentorships, and connections they need to pursue higher-education at several universities, and to succeed after graduation.

    I am a mentor with the She Says programme: Who's Your Momma - focused on supporting the creative industries. Also, Enterprise Steps - an EU-initiative that offers 12 hours free business mentoring to SME's.

    Enterprise Steps in Stratford offer free business mentoring to startups, really helpful for anyone wanting to start their own thing. Not sure anyone does this but I'd really love it if something existed to provide trickle down mentoring. Mid weight level people helping graduates and juniors, seniors mentoring mid weight, and then director level mentoring seniors.
