Are you organised, enjoy working with community organisations and others to make a difference? 

ecobirmingham has been working across Birmingham to build greener, healthier, and fairer communities for many years. With the support of the National Lottery Community fund, we are scaling up our work over the next 3 years to work in depth with Allens Cross Community Association, Springfield Project, and several other community development organisations to build their capacity to support their communities to take up more sustainable lifestyles that suit them. 

This is a new permanent post to help us develop and deliver our sustainable communities support function to: 

  • Coordinated multi-year support to community development organisations
  • Develop a directory of local sustainability organisations or individuals that can support local communities.
  • Deliver some aspects of sustainability support. 

Success will look like developing a more coordinated approach to how we support communities by building the capacity of community organisations to deliver sustainable living support in their areas. The result will be achieving a tipping point of 25% of the households in the communities we work in adopting some form of regular sustainability action, empowering and inspiring communities, and a replicable model of working with community organisations that can be used by others across Birmingham.
