Who We Are

The Community Hub is in a joint venture with the Church of England Birmingham and Church Urban Fund to support local residents in tackling poverty and helping their neighbourhoods to flourish.

As part of the Thrive Partnership, The Community Hub is involved in a  number of different ways. Each partner  works  to their local needs supporting them to:

  • develop activities that meet the needs of their communities,

  • build strong neighbourhood relationships,

  • understand the needs of their community,

  • collaborate with other people, particularly other faith communities, who are also committed to addressing issues of poverty and social justice and to helping their neighbourhoods flourish.

Day Centre for the Elderly

For over 50 years we have operated a day centre for the Elderly. It provides an opportunity for older people who cannot get out of the house easily with a place to go, where they can talk with other people and take part in activities. Accessible transport is available to and from the centre. There is a 2 course Midday Meal and refreshments. A range of activities take place throughout the day.

Care staff are on hand to assist people. We like to discuss with the family before a person is offered a place to make sure that is suitable for their needs. We accept people with dementia.

We are Monday - Wednesday and Friday.

Many people are referred via other agencies and in some cases Birmingham City Council  and other local authorities will help with the cost of attending.

The daily cost is £27.00
