Birmingham Community Matters is a charity, supporting people in Birmingham who are setting up or developing community projects. We know there are gaps in the help available, especially for micro and emerging community groups. We try to fill those gaps by bringing people face to face with others who have had relevant experience.

We want to encourage people to become more active in their communities.

In normal circumstances we hold face-to-face in community venues across the city, where people with questions and ideas can drop in for an informal chat with our ‘Community Matters Helpers’ (people who have experience of running projects and groups). We also hold workshops on useful topics such as fundraising. We share resources.

While physical distancing is in place due to the coronavirus crisis, we have been adapting our services with online events and resource sharing.

We call BCM a ‘peer to peer learning network’ because we believe everyone has something to learn and everyone has something to teach. That’s our motto!
