Benefits for the community

Aspiring Birmingham

Bringing people together

The Games will offers every child and young person a once in a lifetime chance to expand their horizons and be inspired by the Commonwealth Games. Learning activities for schools, grass roots community youth provision and youth social action opportunities will all come together to create an exciting and inspiring programme of activity and engagement for young people across Birmingham. We are working with our partners to deliver projects that will widen knowledge, improve access to sport and exercise, help boost confidence and resilience, and help children and young people acquire new skills.

Birmingham is a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive place and the Games will be a moment to celebrate our distinct identity and personality with the world. We want to enable local people and communities to participate in the Games in a way that builds cohesion, inclusion, and civic pride and uses the Games as a turning point in uniting the city’s population and tackling inequalities.
