Coming up

Share, Learn, Do’ conversations.

If you live in the north Birmingham and want to meet others who get involved with communities and neighbourhoods, people who see a problem and tackle it, individuals or groups who just get stuck in to make life better, then please come along on the 14th January.

The event will be hosted at Perry Common Community Hall between 10am and 12pm.

We’re going to run a similar one in the south of the city and have plans to do the same in the east and west. Do contact us if you’re interested in being part of any of them: G.Shoker@bham.ac.uk

Being a member of Birmingham Partners is as simple as saying you’ll leave your hat at the door and you’ll ‘share, learn, do’ to make the city a better place.

It’s free.

Just email to book a place.

Research

Screen Shot 2018-02-23 at 10.58.05Earlier this year Birmingham Partners agreed to carry out some research to reflect the interconnectedness and resilience of Birmingham people.

In addition to the many stories covered in the news about the city, we felt something was lacking in terms of how Brummies live their lives: the ways they connect with others in and across communities, the ways in which they solve problems and support each other, the great examples of humanity on display.

With a major city there is never going to be just one narrative which sums it up.

But the ‘interconnectedness project’ offers a snapshot which adds richness to the other narratives.

Who we are

We’re an informal group of people from different sectors of the city, wanting to link together for the betterment of Birmingham. Get involved today.

Birmingham Partners is an association of groups and organisations connecting to help improve the city.

We formed in 2014 and have a facilitation group which meets monthly to agree events and a general direction. You can find minutes from those meetings on this website, as well as more information about our plans.

We’re open to anyone who wants to sign up to our aim – to connect for a better Birmingham.

In this amazing city there are already many great networks of people, organisations and communities of interest. Birmingham Partners aim to put those networks in touch with each other, to create new links to share knowledge and help problem-solve across the city.

We think bringing together people from public, private and voluntary sectors, academics, experts and representatives from all communities will open doors, provide answers and create new opportunities.

We will be focussing on very local practical issues as well as city-wide, deep-rooted challenges.

We want to involve as many different people in our events as possible, so we will host them in the north, south, east and west of Birmingham, not just the city centre.

Our watch words are ‘share, learn, do’.
