Birmingham Settlement has always been at the forefront of pioneering innovation, developing a nationally recognised reputation for excellence. In 1907, we opened the first kindergarten in Birmingham, followed shortly after by a Happy Hour Out of School Club. As time has passed we have built services that support all individuals and communities, not just women and families. In the 1970s our Money Advice programme received national recognition when its key principles for Money Advice were adopted as the industry standard and these services continue to be a core part of our delivery today.
In addition to our advice, support, training and activity services, we also work in the heart of communities to bring communities together and break down barriers, promoting integration between people from different cultures, ethnic backgrounds and faiths. We helping local people work together to tackle the issues that matter to them, from community clean up days and creating residents’ associations to neighbours giving up their time to help one another with tasks around their home we have seen a wide range of community project develop with our support.
