About S4F

Sector 4 Focus focuses on using the tools of business to create public good. We work on cross-sector partnerships, not least between businesses and charities, to meet common goals.

Working with businesses we:

  • advise on cost effective implementation of Company Citizenship policies
  • encourage meaningful community engagement
  • advocate and advise on high value employee volunteering and skills exchange with not-for-profit organisations: the business case for engagement

Working with charities we:

  • advise on funding and working partnerships with employers without the risk of mission drift
  • establish mentoring partnerships with business to tackle charity-specific needs
  • facilitate engagement with government, local government and business through training and workshops

Working with local authorities / public sector we:

  • encourage employee volunteering, especially in the field of skills exchange
  • develop cross-sector initiatives in community engagement
  • encourage local delivery of services by community organisations in partnership with local councils
