Following the centralisation of homelessness services in Birmingham, local people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness will have to travel to Newtown for assistance from Birmingham City Council.
Northfield Stakeholders Group (NSG), a group of community organisations and public sector partners, have secured funding from Birmingham City Council to arrange and provide a homelessness service locally.
By employing a new homelessness support worker and extending the reach of Longbridge based South Birmingham Young Homeless Project’s existing services, NSG have ensured that help and support is more easily accessible for local residents in need.
The service covers Northfield constituency: Northfield, Longbridge, Frankley, West Heath, Rednal, Weoley Castle, Kings Norton and a wider area of south west Birmingham: Kings Heath, Bartley Green etc. Call if you are unsure.
Homelessness advice and support is available as a drop in service or call for an appointment and can be accessed at two locations:
- SBYHP at The Depot Belton Grove, Longbridge B454 9PD. Tel: 0121 453 0606
- Northfield Community Partnership 693 Bristol Road South, Northfield B31 Tel: 0121 411 2157
