Equality, Community Safety and Cohesion Service

Birmingham is, outside of London, the UK’s most diverse city, made up of a wide range of cultural, faith and other communities. Promoting equality and tackling inequalities is therefore at the heart of the goals of Birmingham City Council, which are fundamental to building a strong local economy and a fair society; and in these difficult economic times they become even more important. These pages will provide you with an insight on our equalities work that assists the city council in delivering on its priorities to create a fair, prosperous and democratic city.
