Current projects

BCM is an independent charity, our main services made possible with kind support from the National Lottery’s Reaching Communities fund. We have also been funded by Birmingham City Council to support and enhance various community programmes across the city. This work includes holding knowledge sessions, creating resources, and boosting the skills of Birmingham’s small community groups.
