We want to encourage as much involvement and ownership by community members as possible in planning and delivering projects as part of FOLIO’s mission. Once we have secured start-up costs for our play café and are able to turn to FOLIO’s core activities we will be establishing four key working parties:

  • Fundraising
  • Schools
  • Libraries
  • Archives

  • We anticipate that each working party will be composed of at least one trustee and 2 other members, who need not be trustees of the charity. Working parties will be a valuable way for members of the public who wish to support the libraries of Sutton Coldfield and the charitable work of FOLIO Sutton Coldfield to get involved, without the need to take on the responsibilities which come with being a trustee.

    If you have experience in any field which could support and inform the work of our working parties, we’d love to hear from you. We are keen to set up and enable working parties to work as autonomously as possible with ideas coming from the bottom up, and not being delivered from the top-down; FOLIO Sutton Coldfield is a community group run by members of the local community for the benefit of the local community.

    More details of our working parties will follow as they become established. If you would like to find out more or volunteer to join one, please email chair@foliosuttoncoldfield.org.uk.
