Pen Portraits for Trustees and Members



September 2020:

Following the resignation of Revd. Peter (as begins a new role in London), the Board are delighted to welcome Revd Emma Sykes (vicar of St Barnabas, Erdington) as our newest trustee.

Emma brings a wealth of experience to the Fioretti Trust.


Trustee: Revd. Emma Sykes

Emma is the newly appointed Vicar for St Barnabas Erdington and has twelve years’ experience of church leadership in challenging and complex communities. She brings experience in pastoral care, leading community groups, mentoring and leadership training. Before she became an authorised minister in the Church of England, she was a JNC qualified youth and community worker and worked with disadvantaged young people across the West Midlands for a range of different youth charities as well as Stonham Housing Association. Part of this work was supporting children and young people and developing basic skills training for those who had been excluded from school.  Emma is relishing the opportunity to use her extensive experience to help the Trust fulfil its core purpose of improving the life-chances of children as they journey through their education.
