Keep Birmingham Working
This is a broad partnership initiative, delivered through libraries, to help people in Birmingham find work, start a business, learn new skills or become self employed. Your local library is a community hub that can help you back into the world of paid employment, or be your own boss and upgrade your skills through its range of services.
