  • Mission statement

    Birmingham Settlement supports people to lead fulfilling happy lives; creating and sustaining communities and places where people want to live. The role of Birmingham Settlement is to improve the quality of life of individuals and communities facing social and economic exclusion. We do this by working with others to influence policy makers and challenge the status quo. In doing this we work to create a cohesive enhanced environment with opportunity and choice.

  • Aims

    The Birmingham Settlement aims to:

    • We strengthen communities by helping small organisations to develop and tackle social tensions by facilitating dialogue. As a UK Online Centre we combat the link between social and digital exclusion.
    • We help children to get the best start in life possible through family support and Stay and Play services.
    • To encourage maintained independence and tackle social isolation amongst the over 50s by offering advice, support and activities through our Ageing Well programme.
    • To support people facing financial hardship by providing independent, free, non judgemental money advice. We offer a drop in service, as well as outreach for some of the most vulnerable people.
