The people of Birmingham weren’t responsible for the problems facing Birmingham City Council. But they should be at the heart of solving them.

This is beyond party politics and blame games – it’s about working together to provide positive solutions.

We want to bring together community groups and residents to:

  • Show that Birmingham residents care about their community places;
  • Identify the community places (such as buildings, venues and parks) that matter to them and register them as community assets; and
  • Explore community-owned and co-operative solutions for public spaces and services that are fair and sustainable.

We’re moving fast to protect our community places. Please sign up below to send a message that you want to help protect public places and services in your local community – and we’ll keep you updated.

BVSC are supporting this campaign. We are looking to enable the Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise sector in providing positive solutions for spaces and services utilised by communities. We also recognise the financial challenge facing Birmingham city council and the importance of this being managed effectively. As an organisation we are approaching this in a spirit of partnership and cooperation, recognising the shared ambitions and approach to delivering for Birmingham and its citizens.
