Engaging and empowering the people of Birmingham, connecting the many communities across Birmingham and building on the pride people have in their city and in their community – that’s TogetherBirmingham.

TogetherBirmingham provides the space for service users, you and I, to connect with those who provide or commission the services and products we all rely on so much.

Through TogetherBirmingham we can tell them what we think, what we need, and how their services or products could be improved. From healthcare to transport, from education to shopping, from housing to community policing – for the first time, we will be getting people seriously involved in what’s delivered in the City and within the many communities that make up the City of Birmingham.

But TogetherBirmingham goes further than asking questions. We will give people and their communities the tools by which to connect with others that share their community passions and interests. We will give people the opportunity to take forward their joint ideas. We will even give them their own Community Workspace so they can develop their plans and submit their proposals for taking forward their own initiatives, ventures and enterprises.

Most of all, we will give people the power to make a difference.

All we ask of people is a small amount of their time. Whatever it is they can spare, 10 minutes a month or more, and of course they connect with TogetherBirmingham for free.

For every activity you take part in, we will reward you and your community with Community Points. The more Points you collect, the greater your influence.

Together with our partners, we will demonstrate through constant feedback just how valuable people’s time and involvement is and just how, together with others, the people of Birmingham really can make a difference and have a major influence over their future.

Everyone is given their own unique Community Passport so that they can access all the activities carried out by TogetherBirmingham. You can log-in on your mobile, tablet or laptop and see how your contributions are adding up, be proud of the part you are playing, and keep up with regular news and incentives offered by our Community partners.
