About #BrumTogether

During the Covid-19 pandemic #BrumTogether has been the city’s coalition of voluntary, community and faith groups, for essential supplies and support. The network included more than 80 partner organisations working together to provide those most in need with essential support and services. This has involved co-ordinating and delivering food parcels, hot meals, hygiene products, clothing, baby supplies and children’s activity packs to families.

To support the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our communities, The Active Wellbeing Society have also delivered a friendly phone chat service, virtual wellbeing activities and sharing positive stories of people coming together to support each other.

We are currently offering the following services:

Food Parcels: We are providing a limited number of emergency food parcels on a first come first served basis for Birmingham residents only. You can find out more here.

Cooked meals: You can pick up free, nutritious meals from our Big Feed Community Cafes, as well as recipe kits and some food parcels too. Find more info about the Cafes here.

Bulk Food Collection: The Active Wellbeing Society is able to offer bulk food collections for organisations to collect from our distribution centre in Digbeth by appointment only. Find out more about bulk food collections here

Telephone support: We are committed to supporting those in need in our communities through our telephone support ‘Listen and Connect‘ service. Find out more here.

Clothing: Excellent quality clothing is available for free for organisations to request through our Wear and Share project. Find out more and request here.
