Members’ Meeting – Neighbourhood Network Schemes

Children’s Quarter Members and guests at the Chinese Community Centre in Birmingham

Disabled young people can reach the age of 19 to face not only issues around employment, training, welfare, housing, relationships, health, care and adult life but also a lack of any services funded to support them. CQ Members and other groups working with younger people frequently carry on providing services to younger adults without dedicated funding or support from statutory bodies.

Birmingham City Council’s Neighbourhood Network Schemes (NNS) are now supporting younger adults (under 50) who are disabled. At this meeting representatives of the neighbourhood schemes city-wide and in the ten districts in the city will be present to work
with CQ Members and partners to discuss proposals to support young adults from 18 and up that could be funded – including through NNS small grants.

The Chinese Community Centre in Birmingham is at 99 Bradford St, Digbeth, Birmingham B12 0NS. The formal part of the meeting is 10-11.30am. After 11.30am there will be space to discuss projects and proposals and to work out how to make the most of community assets.
