The last Handsworth Resident Network was held on the 17th Feb at Handsworth Fire Station. It was great too see that someone from most of the main resident led groups came along and some young people. After lots of discussion the group agreed that it will be really useful to work together as a wider network.
Many of the residents that attended have been working hard for their community for years, Handsworth as five main resident associations:
- Wilkes Resident Association
- Grove Lane Resident Association
- Rose Hill Resident Association
- West Handsworth Forum
- Golden Age Forum
The Resident Network will now meet every month please come along:
Thursday 1st March at 7pm until 9pm to be held at at the Community Room, Golden Croft, Off Grove Lane, Handsworth.
The resident network has been set up to give local residents, resident associations & resident led groups the opportunity to come together and look at ways to work together as a community on key issues that affect Handsworth.
If you’re interested in getting more involved or meeting other people that are active within the community then please come along. The resident network meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month and has representation on the Handsworth Neighbourhood Management Partnership.
The Chamberlain Forum & Handsworth Neighbourhood Management has been asked to continue to support the network and will help run the meeting on the 11th
