About The Active Wellbeing Society

The Active Wellbeing Society (TAWS) is a charitable Community Benefit Society, which means that it is owned by its members and established for the benefit of the community. It has charitable purposes and is treated as a charity by HMRC. All assets are “locked” for the benefit of the communities that TAWS serves.  This ensures that our investment and services are maintained and cannot be for private benefit.

The model enables us to work in a way which is collaborative with our communities, providing a one member one vote model to make decisions democratically and ensure that what we offer is always of the time, inclusive and relevant. 

The Society was developed out of the successful Wellbeing Service set up by Birmingham City Council in June 2015. It has an outstanding track record of innovation, collaboration, citizen engagement and successful delivery, within the Council, and by going independent in 2018, TAWS was able to build on this foundation and unlock new sources of funding to support its further growth and development.
