Birmingham's business charter - City

A Birmingham social enterprise is an organisation that applies commercial strategies to maximse improvements in human and environmental well-being. This website is dedicated to finding that balance between business success and people support.

Our years of policy and strategy development and of building partnerships at the highest level have given us unrivalled skill and know-how across a vast range of scenarios:

  • Working with the public sector, advising on programmes to support healthy behaviours, protect the environment and enhance public safety
  • In Europe, we helped the British Council design a stakeholder engagement strategy for their social entrepreneurship programme
  • Developing a 'value for money' tool with top health economists and the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE).
  • We help organisations use research tools to understand their customers and develop more effective behaviour change programmes
