The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will be the most significant sporting and cultural event that the West Midlands has ever staged. It is our hope that communities can realise the far-reaching benefits of the Games as we prepare to welcome the world to this vibrant city and region.
A way of supporting this is through the creation of a new Birmingham 2022 Community Programme that will be launched in the Spring of 2020.
Our Community Programme will enable local, regional, and national non-commercial projects, events or initiatives to be acknowledged by and work with the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games on community activities.
A new community brand
The new Community Programme brand will be awarded to projects, under licence, that share a common purpose with Birmingham 2022, having a positive impact on the communities that they serve and helping us to deliver the Games.
The Birmingham 2022 mission is to bring people together, improve health and wellbeing, help the region to grow and succeed, be a catalyst for change, and put the region on the map.
We will be looking for ambitious, innovative community projects that support a diverse range of subjects. These might be projects that aim to improve skills, offer training, provide volunteering resource, benefit the environment, encourage participation in sport, deliver social value or activities for young people.
The Community Programme will enable organisations and projects to align with the ambitions of Birmingham 2022, be recognised for the work they are doing, and use the new community brand logo to amplify their activity in their communications, at events and in the media.
