Call to action from St. Paul’s Trust CEO David Cusack regarding the worsening cost of living crisis.
With the winter looming and the cost-of-living crisis getting more severe I want to reach out to third sector colleagues/faith groups/business’s’ in the Balsall Heath area to see if there is an appetite for us to come together to see what we can collectively do to support the local population who we all know will struggle to heat their homes and feed their families.
I believe that collectively we could make a difference and I am therefore suggesting that as many of us who are interested in working together meet to try and scope out an approach.
Our latest Impact Report for 2021/22 is now available to read on our Literature Page.

Attached is a Birmingham Mail article that shows the positive impact St. Paul’s make with the work we do with children and families.
Whilst we are not appreciative of the third world headlines, it does show how we help to improve lives particularly through the last two years.
The Active Wellbeing Society (TAWS) and St. Paul’s Community Development Trust have been in partnership for two years working together to ensure the funding of the Balsall Heath City Farm, as well as working together on the site to bring support and services to the local community in addition to those already being provided there. This includes a community kitchen and a portable Share Shack.
St. Paul’s Trust would like to thank The Roger & Douglas Turner Charitable Trust (CIO) for the grant of £3,000 to enhance our offer to improve the lives of children.
St. Paul’s is happy to promote the Healthy Start Scheme and encourages families to access their entitlement.
Healthy Start is a government scheme to improve the health of low-income pregnant women and families. Women who are 10˖ weeks pregnant and families with children under four years old qualify if they are on benefits and tax credits. The scheme offers eligible women and families, FREE vouchers worth £4.25 (or £8.50 for a baby in the first year) to spend on milk, fruit, vegetables and first stage infant formula milk. In addition, families also receive Healthy Start vitamin vouchers.
For the last few years, we have entered the Royal Horticultural Society’s Heart of England in Bloom – It’s Your Neighbourhood Awards and we are pleased to report that, this year, we have been awarded: Level 5 – Outstanding!
