Meet The Team
Following the Government's recent advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Sport Birmingham team is working remotely with immediate effect.
Individual team members can be contacted via work mobiles and email, please find their details below.
Like so many others, the sport and physical activity sector has already been significantly challenged by coronavirus and this is only likely to accelerate in the weeks and months ahead.
More importantly than ever, we need to work together to ensure our people, communities and organisations stay safe and as strong as possible. Our 'virtual' door remains open! If you have any questions then please don't hesitate to ask.
