Perry Barr Neighbourhood Network Scheme

Promoting wellbeing for people aged over 50

Neighbourhood Network Schemes (NNS) in Birmingham work to strengthen communities and help older adults in our city to lead happy, healthy lives.  They do this in lots of ways. One way is by giving support and small grants to local community groups, recognising their vital role in bringing people together. 


What do we do?

Birmingham Community Matters (BCM) is delighted to be working with Perry Barr NNS to boost small community groups aimed at people over 50 in the Perry Barr constituency.

That includes Birchfield, Handsworth, Handsworth Wood, Kingstanding, Holyhead, Lozells, Perry Barr and Oscott.

We support Perry Barr NNS-funded groups with online and face-to-face sessions to help people work through ideas relating to running and growing their community groups in Perry Barr. 

Past topics include accessing funding and keeping projects Covid-safe.

For Perry Barr groups

If your Perry Barr community group supports people aged over 50 and you’re unfamiliar with Perry Barr NNS, we can help! 


Here’s what we’ve got coming up especially for Perry Barr NNS-funded groups – as well as events for anyone who is running a small community group in Birmingham. If nothing suits, you may like to book a one-to-one session with BCM.
