Over the past 15 months, Birmingham City University has worked with Birmingham City Council, community researchers, and organisations to identify and respond to issues raised by residents in East Birmingham.

The project "Creating a transformative partnership in East Birmingham: Ideas into Action" held consultations and events, engaged with over 300 people, created partnerships with local organisations, and trained residents as Community Researchers to undertake research projects exploring local priorities in Alum Rock, Bordesley Green, Nechells, Shard End and Ward End.

We will share learning from the project with residents, stakeholders and institutions, so that the voices of local people can be built upon when delivering the East Birmingham Inclusive Growth Strategy. The event will showcase the work community researchers have undertook in collaboration with researchers at BCU.

Lunch will be provided and a tour will be organised of some of the facilities the BCU City Centre campus offers.
