Birmingham Children's Trust
Birmingham Children's Trust exists to make a positive difference for children, young people and families in the city.
We used to be called Children's Services and be run by Birmingham City Council. For a long time our services were inadequate, and we needed to do much more to support disadvantaged children and young people in the city and make sure they were safe.
We started making some important improvements – listening to and learning from others, improving our social work practice and supporting our staff to do their jobs well.
We became a Children's Trust in April 2018 to help us accelerate these changes.
Our Trust is owned by, but independent from, Birmingham City Council.

WheelPower provides opportunities for disabled people to get into sport and lead active lives.
We have been providing opportunities in sport for people with physical impairments for over 70 years.
Based in Stoke Mandeville, the home of the Paralympic movement, WheelPower is at the heart of wheelchair sport.
From first-timers to Paralympic medallists, we support and promote participation at all levels. We have seen how playing sport can enrich lives, offering tremendous physical and psychological benefits, whatever your age or ability.
While sport can develop confidence and improve your health, it's also a great way to put a smile on the faces of those taking part. Each year, WheelPower supports over 62,099 disabled people to access and participate in sport and activity across the country. You can join us in this mission as either a participant, supporter or volunteer and together we can help transform lives through sport.
