Step Up to the Platform


Calling all Voluntary and Community Organisations in Birmingham – An opportunity to be part of future service provision in Birmingham –




At Forward For Life we do appreciate that it is tough out there – little funding, little opportunity for innovation and very few doors to be welcomed through when it comes to service delivery opportunities.


But it is what it is and we have to make best of the opportunities that are offered…and what we do know is that there is wisdom to be found crowds and opportunities to be discovered through innovative collaboration. 


The Platform Project BSC is part of a lotteries funded programme in partnership with Common Unity Social Enterprise, Forward For Life and Digbeth Trust that seeks to gain a greater understanding of how the new Health and Social Care commissioning landscape is viewed by Voluntary and Community Organisations (VCO). The programme also aims to look at ways of influencing networks and partnership across the Health and Social Care spectrum for the future.


If you work in a VCO, please complete the survey here:


All organisations that submit a survey response will have the opportunity to attend a valuable follow up workshop on the morning of July 19th. But you must submit the survey by close of play on Tuesday 16th July!



By engaging with this survey you are starting an engagement with future service provision!
