Volunteer Opportunity – Families Against Violence (FAM) – Treasurer

FAM support principally Black and ethnic minority families in the Moss Side and surrounding areas of the city with the over-arching aim of helping to prevent young people getting sucked into anti-social behaviour, criminal activity, gangs and violence. FAM do this through providing mentoring, role-models, diversionary sports activities, safe spaces and pathways into training and employment.

Families Against Violence (FAM) is recruiting a Treasurer to oversee the financial matters of the charity. The role of Treasurer is not accompanied by any financial remuneration, although expenses for travel may be claimed.

The Treasurer will oversee the financial matters of the charity in line with good practice and in accordance with the governing document and legal requirements, and report to the Board of Trustees at regular intervals about the financial health of the organisation. The Treasurer will ensure that effective financial measures, controls and procedures are put in place, and are appropriate for the charity.

Prior to Covid-19 FAM engaged with hundreds of young people weekly, making a major impact on their lives and life-chances. Income in the year immediately prior to the pandemic was over £90,000. Successive lockdowns had a significant impact on their funding, services and volunteers. In the past six months FAM have worked hard to rebuild the charity and to add capabilities to address local community issues highlighted during Covid-19.

Diversity is one of FAM’s core values. FAM strongly believe that your lived experience is a vital part of who you are and enhances what you bring to a professional setting. FAM actively encourage applications from a variety of backgrounds, and with a range of skills and experiences. FAM are particularly interested to hear from Black, Asian and minoritised applicants and those who have personal experience of the criminal justice system.
