About the Forum

We are a Birmingham City Centre resident-led community of voluntary, non-political residents.

We are recognised by, and our admin. costs assisted by, Birmingham City Council.

We Seek to:

  • Enable residents to come together through meetings (and online) to discuss local issues, share information and meet with elected representatives and officers responsible for delivering local public services.
  • Elect a committee of usually between 5 and 14 people to represent residents’ views and work with other public, private and voluntary sector bodies and other local community groups for the improvement of the area and hence the lives of its residents.

Our Objectives are to:

Enhance, or at least maintain, the quality of the area in which we live, by:

  1. Discussing and influencing issues affecting the local community.
  2. Raising awareness.
  3. Informing the public of social developments.
  4. Undertaking research for public benefit.
  5. Advancing education and doing other such things, that encourage people to show an interest in the area and to bring together residents and others on a regular basis in order to address community issues of common concern or interest.

We Endeavour to:

Work within the spirit of Equal Opportunities for all and encourage the active participation of all sections of the community.

Ensure that issues of concern to Members* of the Forum are drawn to the attention of any authority deemed to be appropriate.

We Focus on City Centre Matters:

We want to represent your opinions along with our own!

For example, are you going to be affected by the rebuilding of New Street station or the Eastside HST development?
