About

Birmingham Settlement is one of the oldest charities in Birmingham, dating back to 1899. We provide a range of services to meet the needs of disadvantaged and vulnerable people in Birmingham and further afield.

We work with people from different cultures and backgrounds, of all ages from young children to teenagers, right through to older people. Through our services we help people to identify and addressthe issues they face, improve opportunities available to them and empower the local community to have a voice, take control of their lives, make changes and support each other.

We provide a holistic approach to supporting individuals, addressing all areas of support and need that they may have, rather than addressing each issue in isolation, through which the individual is more likely to see a long term positive impact.
