About the Project

The Birmingham is our Home Project aim is to demonstrate the positive contributions which migration can make to our city and our local communities.

To do this we asked Housing Associations, also referred to as Registered Providers of social housing, and their partner organisations to identify case study individuals who have come to Birmingham and made it their home. The individuals we have met and interviewed have shared their life stories with us, and their views on making a home here. Their stories will be touring the Birmingham area from June 2010 to February 2011 in a large display presentation, and be featured here on the website.

Through the support of the Birmingham Social Housing Partnership, the Big Lottery, and Birmingham City Council the project was launched on June 18, 2010 during Refugee Week 2010.
