Offer Local Support
BVSC has joined forces with Birmingham City council to create the C19 Support Brum partnership, an initiative that will work through existing local neighbourhood structures, voluntary groups, and local elected members to ensure that all parts of the city have access to support, advice, and practical help.
Find out how you can offer your support, either as an individual or as an organisation:
