Community sits at the heart of CIWM and this has never been more apparent – or more important – than during the Covid-19 pandemic. Faced with a previously unimaginable crisis, our members and volunteers have come together to support one another like never before.

By sharing knowledge, ideas and advice, asking and answering questions, working collaboratively to solve problems, and simply being there for one another, our members have helped each other through the unprecedented challenges we have faced during this time.

As we begin to emerge from this crisis and look to the future, one thing is for certain: community carries on.

At CIWM, you’ll find a range of resources designed to help you stay connected, harness the power of collective knowledge and experience, and maybe even make some new friends along the way.




Connect with fellow members in our virtual community

Exclusively for members, CIWM Connect is a vibrant virtual community space where members can share ideas and advice, solve problems, ask and answer questions and, above all, connect with each other.

Nurture new talent – or develop your own skills and experience - through our dedicated mentoring scheme

Connecting with a supportive mentor can be a powerful way of developing your knowledge, expanding your skill set, building your confidence and, ultimately, boosting your career. Through our mentoring platform, CIWM Mentoring, we’ll match you with a more experienced member who has volunteered to provide advice, guidance and coaching.
