Causes

Birmingham is the youngest city in Europe with under-25s accounting for nearly 40% of our population but it’s important not to forget that the city still has many older adults.

LoveBrum is showcasing three projects throughout December that support Birmingham’s ELDERLY community, helping to combat isolation and loneliness.

Umberslade Nurseries

Umberslade Nurseries is owned by Queen Alexandra College and provides a place for a variety of people, including those with dementia and the local elderly community, to get involved in a range of craft and horticulture activities, as well as a place for them to socialise.
