Following the conclusion of the Neighbourhood Network Scheme development projects across Edgbaston, Erdington, Hall Green, Hodge Hill, Ladywood, Northfield, Sutton and Yardley Constituencies the final asset directory from the organisations commissioned to deliver those projects has now been pulled together. This also includes information from Selly Oak and Perry Barr.
The directory has been created to support Birmingham’s Neighbourhood Network Schemes and primarily to connect citizens and social workers to the rich diversity of community assets across the city’s neighbourhoods. It is intended that this information will also be of use to anyone with an interest in strengths and asset based approaches to working with citizens and communities. The directory should provide information about what’s available, where and how to access it, but also provide some inspiration about what’s possible. It will be updated and shared every couple of months so the next version will be with you in early June.
The community assets which are listed are those which are accessible by older people aged 50 years or over. This includes places, activities, groups, events and things which any age group can access, as well as things specifically for people aged over 50 years. However, there’s lots here for the whole community and people of all ages. Nearly all the items listed assume that older people are able to attend and participate without any additional help or support (though there will be opportunities for people to attend with a PA, for instance).

Work is progressing to get the Neighbourhood Network Schemes fully up and running in all Birmingham’s Constituencies and from April these will get started in Erdington (with Witton Lodge Community Association), Ladywood (with Birmingham Settlement), Sutton (with Age Concern) and Yardley (with the Disability Resource Centre). In the meantime if you would like to find out more about the Neighbourhood Network Schemes in the Selly Oak and Perry Barr Constituencies or nominate community assets and activities (i.e. places to go and things to do, help and support) in these two areas please make contact via the details below.
