Our Work

Seacole Group NED Mentoring Programme 

The aim of our national mentorship program is to engage, retain and develop new and aspiring NHS NEDs and Chairs through mentoring, for all of us to contribute to and influence the service provided by the wider NHS.

NED Mentoring Programme

As a group of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic  NEDs, together we bring extensive knowledge, skills, and our individual cultural intelligence to help our respective Trusts and the NHS govern more effectively. We endeavour to ensure we develop ourselves and help develop each other to be the best that we can be.

If you are an aspirant or newly appointed NED/Chair and would like to be considered for our mentoring programme, please complete our form

You can also visit our 'Becoming a NED' page to access resources for aspirant Board members

Our Priorities

As Non-Executive Directors, we have a responsibility to seek assurance that the Executive is providing the best care and services to patients and service users.  Using a “race lens”, the Seacole Group focusses on topics and areas of interest regarding outcomes for people from BAE communities in particular areas, accessing certain services . We focus on the following thematic areas:


(Maternal Health & Mental Health)

Community healthcare, Third sector, CORE20+5


Staff networks,   Recruitment & Talent Management


(External digital inequalities & reach)
