New ways to get support and get involved.

The 26th and 28th January saw the launch of the Move More Eat Well programme.  It was great to see so many people there and we look forward to working with you over the next couple of months and years.

Sport Birmingham, as one of the Move More Eat Well programme partners, will be delivering the Active Communities intervention which focuses on two elements:

  1. To increase the number of volunteers and deploy them into the different interventions of the programme
  2. Support the strength and sustainability of local organisations

We will be running a series of workshops for you to attend that are aimed at individuals and organisations. In addition to this we would like to meet you to discuss how we can work with you and support you over the next couple of years.

New Workshops Announced

The first Active Communities workshops will run at Bournville College on:
