This  campaign is centered around uniting Birmingham at this critical time, and fundraising specifically for causes who are continuing to deliver great work to help our city during the pandemic.

Your £1 will help to fund 4 incredible Birmingham based charities and projects, working to support the most vunerable members in our communities.

As-Suffa Outreach

As-Suffa Outreach provides a number of programmes and support mechanisms to assist our community. Initially established in 2012 to meet the needs of the homeless community in Birmingham, what started as a ‘feeding the homeless’ service once a week, has now grown into a number of projects that function all across the United Kingdom.

During this time, As-Suffa Outreach are delivering food packages to people self isolating with Coronavirus symptoms or people over 65.

Contact 07835487124 to arrange a food delivery.

They are also providing transport to NHS workers, who are struggling to get to work.

Beyond The Horizon

Previously funded LoveBrum charity, Beyond the Horizon charity helps children, young people and families who have been affected by loss, bereavement, divorce or separation; working through their challenges to achieve hope for a healthy future and emotional wellbeing.

Support for the children and families, is vital at this time and they are working to supply their services online. Beyond the Horizon need our help to raise funds, helping to update their IT services and print resources for their users.

Inspiration Support

During this National Crisis a small, centrally based group of volunteers from Inspiration Support are going out delivering care packages to those most vulnerable still sleeping on the streets. We will be implementing social distancing, leaving packages for rough sleepers as they wake up in the morning to ensure they have all their essentials.

The number of people sleeping on the streets has been reduced due to proactive action from Birmingham City Council and other local charities; however, for the meantime we will continue to support rough sleepers in this way.


Thank you for your support, Brum.

We will get through this, together.
