Support and Prevention

Vulnerability and crime affects us all either directly as a victim. Or indirectly when its impact implodes within the communities and neighbourhoods we are part of.
Networkfour a local registered charity has for the last ten years held a vision and passion to support those who are at risk and vulnerable, and prevent the impact of poverty and criminality on the communities of Birmingham.


To do this we work positively to engage those who feel society has little or nothing to offer them, other than poverty, deprivation and for some criminality. Networkfour support hundreds of at risk clients each year to leave behind vulnerability and lives negatively involved within the criminal justice system. It is our vision to provide care, integrated effective intervention, signposting, and more importantly the offer of real opportunities for change.

Project Support

Our award winning Birmingham based Vulnerable and Offender support work gains the ongoing trust and confidence of many city-wide organisations. Our 10 years of experience supporting those most in need continue to work effectively with; West Midlands Police, Birmingham City Council, Prisons, local charity networks and private landlords.


Our one-to-one referral process supports each client to compile a care plan, and access to a growing 3rd sector network of support and intervention, aligned to our nine city-wide care pathways. This offers individual young people and adults in or at risk of vulnerability and poverty, or being drawn into criminality, a credible and safe alternative and route out of their difficult situations.
