Founded in 1899, Birmingham Settlement is one of the oldest charities in Birmingham.

Part of a movement of social reform activists outraged by the plight of the poor in the 19th century, originally Birmingham Settlement’s work concentrated on providing support to women and families in the seriously deprived St Mary’s area, now known as Newtown. Now our breadth of work is much wider and reaches more communities in Birmingham. We are now based in the heart of Aston but also have a new hub in Kitts Green which serves the Hodge Hill community and deliver services on an outreach basis across Birmingham.

Person specification
