Networkfour seeks a new Finance Trustee
Networkfour is seeking a Finance Trustee to join its board on a voluntary basis.
The charity, which was founded in 2008 by Gary Wicker, specialises in working with vulnerable people and rough sleepers, who are referred by the police, Birmingham City Council and other statutory agencies. Networkfour helps the vulnerable with accommodation and referral to other specialist agencies.
The charity has excellent working relationships with the Business Improvement District, West Midlands Police, West Midlands Ambulance Service, Birmingham City Council’s Street Intervention Partnership, Birmingham City Mission and more. Networkfour has also established a partnership with two of the city’s universities, who are keen to give students the opportunity of ‘hands-on’ work among the homeless and disadvantaged.
More recently, Networkfour launched the Birmingham Pastors Project, through which a team of between two and six volunteers go out into the city centre during the daytime to make direct contact with vulnerable men and women.
Networkfour’s volunteers come from several local churches, two universities and a few social enterprises. It has a strong connection with St Luke’s, Gas Street. The charity is looking for a Finance Trustee, who has experience of managing the finances of a small charity, and who is motivated to serve the least, the last and the lost. The amount of work involved would be fairly small, though the charity is looking to expand its ministry in the coming months.
