About Birmingham New Communities Network

Birmingham New Communities Network (BNCN) was established in March 2004 to "improve the quality of life of all the communities in Birmingham and its surrounding areas, by promoting the health, education, social Wellbeing and economic stability of communties settling through migration within the Birmingham area".


The Birmingham New Communities Network was first launched as a network for migrant and refugee community organisations in Birmingham.


It has succeeded in bringing together over 60 grass roots groups, and assisting these groups in working together to address issues which concern these communities. BNCN has also been able to develop positive relationships with public and private and voluntary sector institutions, educational establishments and other service providers.


Since it was first established, BNCN has enjoyed considerable success in its activities, engaging in a range of programmes and positive partnerships. Early in 2011 the activities of the network were paused to allow the organisation to focus on its own internal development, enhancing its capacity and securing its future to ensure services provided are meeting the needs of our community groups.
