Benefits for the community

Healthy Birmingham

Improving health and wellbeing

We want the legacy of the Commonwealth Games to inspire and enable Birmingham’s residents to improve and sustain their levels of physical activity and wellbeing. We want our residents to live more active, longer, healthier and independent lives. We are working with our partners across the city and the region to deliver accessible and welcoming programmes for everyone in every corner of Birmingham.

Building on the work already underway we will continue to improve cycling and walking infrastructure to encourage people to get out and about and build exercise into their daily lives.

There will also be sustained efforts to use the power and platform of the Games to improve mental wellbeing and accelerate mental health awareness across the city.
