As a North East based charity, its apt we use a famous North East proverb ‘shy bairns get nowt’ to put a shout out for some much-needed support. As Mahatma Gandhi said, ‘if you don’t ask, you don’t get it’.

OUR ASK: we urgently need voluntary, pro-bono support or secondments to help us overcome some short-term issues & deliver some exciting projects.

  • Are you a qualified accountant on Furlough or currently not working?
  • Are you a retired Finance Director?
  • Do you have time to support an established Charity to deliver some urgent projects?
  • Are you a business wanting to give something back through pro-bono support or a secondment?

YES! Then we would love to hear from you.

Five Lamps (www.fivelamps.org.uk) is looking to restructure how we work, not only to survive the current challenges but to thrive and grow. By being on the front foot we want to ensure we are ready and best placed to support individuals, families, and communities when they need our help the most.

Like most charities and social enterprises, Covid19 has really impacted on us. We are proud of how we have responded, remained resilient and continued to deliver much needed services, products, and support. We have achieved this with a strong yet small executive team and supportive Trustees and Board Directors. But we now need some extra help during the next few months:

We are looking for volunteers, secondments and / or pro-bono or discounted support to help us:

  • Challenge & redesign our financial business plan and operating systems
  • Oversee and improve our cash flow management and forecasting
  • Produce budgets that are not just ‘going concern’ but growth plans for 2021 onwards.
  • Effectively manage through the next few months until we can appoint a new Finance Director and other new roles
  • Deliver the restructure that we know will secure our future and enable us to scale up to support the most financially excluded households in the UK.

As well as giving us your time, we know you will get something back in return.

  • Experience for your CV and your future career
  • A strong sense of social value
  • Satisfaction from helping play a role in creating a legacy for the future.

If you are interested, have the skills, have some time, and want to work with and support a charity that makes a real difference to people’s lives and with a team that is passionate about what we do (and fun to work with), please contact us info@fivelamps.org.uk to express an interest; send us some information about you or your company and what time or support you could volunteer or contribute.
