West Midlands Police are inviting individuals and community groups to special local events to help improve communities across South West Birmingham.
What is a World Café?
Neighbourhood policing teams are hosting “World Cafés” where groups and individuals can meet with their local police teams to discuss issues that need addressing and ways their communities can be improved.
The events will help identify the needs and priorities of each area, where groups can work together and help identify where monies from the Active Citizens Fund would be best placed.
What is the Active Citizens Fund?
The Active Citizens Fund is delivered jointly by West Midlands Police and the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner. It aims to enable members of the community to be positively engaged and active, resulting in improvements to their own communities.
Each neighbourhood policing team is allocated a share of the fund for the area they cover.
Who should attend?
- If you are an individual or group active in your local community and want to help identify what improvements could be made
- If you are an individual or group who has a specific idea for improving your local community but need help and / or funds to enable you to carry it out
