Thrive Together Birmingham
Thrive Together Birmingham aims to support and grow the movement of individuals, churches and organisations who, motivated by their faith, are committed to addressing issues of poverty and to playing their part in helping their neighbourhoods to flourish.
Thrive Together Birmingham is a joint venture charity of the Church of England Birmingham and Church Urban Fund, and is part of the Community Regeneration Department of the Church of England Birmingham.
We work with churches, individuals and organisations in a number of different ways, often tailored to the local context. We help develop activities that meet the needs of local communities and encourage collaboration with other people, particularly other faith communities, around the common agenda of neighbourhood flourishing.
