Benefits for the community

Thriving Birmingham

Helping the city to grow and succeed

Hosting the Commonwealth Games has created long-term economic benefits and boosted the reputation of the city on the global stage. Birmingham City Council is using the Games as a catalyst to accelerate and amplify the delivery of more skills and jobs for its local people and to drive opportunities for the city’s businesses.

We are supporting local people with training, including higher-level skills training and high-quality work experience. We are providing the people of Birmingham with local opportunities that the Games created and helping support them to use the benefits of that experience for years to come.
