Birchfield Big Local is a resident-led programme. The main decision-making body is the Big Local Partnership which consists mostly, but not exclusively, of residents of the Birchfield Big Local area. The role of Partnership members is to represent the interests of residents in the Big Local area. They work in partnership with other residents to develop and review the Big Local Plan – which determines the priorities for action. Birmingham Voluntary Service Council (BVSC) act as the Local Trusted Organisation (LTO) for Birchfield Big Local and manage the finances for the Partnership. There is also a Big Local Rep who is the link between the Partnership and Local Trust who have overall responsibility for the Big Local programme nationally.
BVSC also currently employ on behalf of the partnership three staff – one full time and two part-time. Birchfield Big Local relies heavily on volunteers – people who want to contribute to their local area and help other people. The volunteers are supported by a Volunteer Coordinator.
We are always looking for new partnership members, please see Joining the Partnership for details.
