Working together to make Birmingham a better place for everyone

For 100 years, Birmingham Civic Society has worked to make Birmingham a better place for everyone. We are a membership body made up from a wide range of volunteers who encourage community engagement and promote pride in our city.

Our work involves many activities some of which include:

  • Improving our green spaces through delivering the Birmingham Trees for Life scheme
  • Inspiring the minds of young people through our Next Generation Awards
  • Promoting and improving our built environment, architecture and public art
  • Celebrating the heritage of our city by installing Blue Plaques and History Plates

Working together to make Birmingham a better place for everyone since 1918
