BCM annual reports
and impact

We help people to make change happen in their Birmingham communities

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.

BCM's annual reports and accounts

BCM's latest annual report:

This report reflects our joy at being able to bring back in-person activities after the Covid-19 pandemic. Here’s how it all went!

BCM's previous annual reports

Annual report

As the UK emerged from the pandemic, we began adopting our ‘hybrid’ way of delivering BCM’s services: a mixture of online and in-person support. This report tells that story!

Annual report

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’.

Annual report

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

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

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.
