BCM reports and impact

We boost the development of small voluntary and community groups across Birmingham

BCM’s vision is to see voluntary and community action encouraged and celebrated in Birmingham, with people empowered to make change happen – no matter how small. Ideas flourish and our communities grow stronger and more connected. 

Case studies

How BCM helped Stirchley-based community group Fruit & Nut Village become a charity (charitable incorporated organisation).

CASE (Carol's Advisory, Support & Everything Else)

How BCM helped to boost small Handsworth-based voluntary group CASE with connections, documentation and connections.

BCM's annual reports and accounts

Our latest annual report: 2020-21

Why are annual reports so often boring, when our work isn’t? We gave this one a fresh look. It’s called ‘Making the most of a difficult year: our pandemic story’.

Our previous reports

Annual report
2019-20

Our year end is April and it’s interesting to read in our 2019-20 annual report how we were already anticipating adapting BCM’s plans in light of Covid-19. 

Annual report
2018-19

Thank goodness we have enlisted the help of Kerry, our BCM designer, since this 2018-19 annual report. It should be reported to the Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Logos.

Annual report
2017-18

BCM’s very first annual report! From the days when we were a ‘small voluntary organisation’ with a management committee, like many of the groups we support.
