 The Birmingham & Black Country Community Foundation (BBCCF) and Wider Impact Consultancy have been thanked for the support they have given for assisting in the formation of the Alumwell based Gateway Enterprise Centre.

Situated below the Minhaj-UI-Quran Mosque the Gateway Enterprise Centre will deliver a much needed community facility in the heart of a deprived local community.

The work delivered by Wider Impact has included extensive community and partner agency consultation, establishing a new community based Committee, drawing up Articles of Association, enabling formal plans to be created, delivering a Business Plan, and raising the funds to open a Youth Drop-In Centre (pictured), which forms ‘Phase ONE’ of the new Centre.
