Benefits for the community

Thriving Birmingham

Helping the city to grow and succeed

Hosting the Commonwealth Games will drive long-term economic benefit and boost the reputation of the city. Birmingham City Council will use 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 will support local people with training, including higher level skills training and high-quality work experience. We will link people in Birmingham to the local opportunities that the Games will create and support them to use the benefits of that experience for years to come.
