Events and surgeries

While we keep one another safe . . .

Our physical surgeries are on hold for now, while we all practise physical distancing. 

We’re still very much here for you, though. We have been busy finding ways to continue supporting small community groups and projects across the city, with coronavirus-related challenges and indeed any challenges they’re facing.

We’re now offering online surgeries and webinars and – new for autumn 2020 – themed small group meetings to help you at whichever stage you’ve reached with your Birmingham community group or project,. 

You can also access our coronavirus resources here: listings relating to grants, research, continuity support and – increasingly – information on recovery and building back brighter. 

Sign up to our e-newsletter to stay in the loop.

We’re also working hard behind the scenes to keep developing BCM. Thanks to our Reaching Communities grant we were working in parts of Birmingham that were previously new to us. We want to continue with this, from afar, and we’re always pleased to make links with community venues to set up future surgeries. Please do get in touch if you think your venue or local area would benefit from hosting one. You can email us at
