Debt advice centre for South Birmingham

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) has opened a debt centre in South Birmingham covering postcodes B29, B30, B31, B14 and B38.

CAP offers a uniquely in-depth, caring service to people with spiralling personal debt regardless of their age, gender, faith or background. Every client is visited in their own home, the charity does all the negotiating with creditors, and local volunteers offer support to each person face-to-face until the day they are debt free.


Centre Manager Judy Ward writes: "The Church has always been about offering hope and we're really pleased to be able to give more people a tried-and-tested route out of debt alongside other great free debt agencies in the area. There is a lot in the Bible about looking after the poorest. In our society, a lot of poverty is debt-related so six churches have joined together to open a CAP centre to help get people back on track. These churches are Christ Church (Selly Park), Selly Park Baptist Church, Stirchley Community Church, Selly Oak Elim, St Stephen's (Selly Park) and Christian Life Centre (Selly Oak)."

A campaign to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation (CSE)

A campaign to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation (CSE) launched in January 2015.

The regional See Me, Hear Me campaign features on buses travelling across the West Midlands as well as on radio to raise the profile of this abuse crime and help keep children safe.

Featuring the message 'Memories last a lifetime... Everyone has memories of their first love, but for some they won't be happy ones', it aims to highlight the horrific crime and its lifelong impact on victims.

People are directed to the campaign website www.seeme-hearme.org.uk for information on how to spot the warning signs of CSE and what to do if you are concerned about a child or young person. The site also features educational films to raise awareness of CSE, along with campaign posters for individuals and organisations to download and display.

The campaign was launched in June by Dudley, Wolverhampton, Sandwell, Walsall, Coventry, Birmingham and Solihull Councils, along with West Midlands Police and other partners, to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation.

CSE is a crime that can affect any child, anytime, regardless of their social or ethnic background. It is child abuse and involves perpetrators grooming their victims in various ways, such as in person, via mobiles or online, to gain their trust before emotionally and sexually abusing them.

Tuesday evenings - 6.00pm to 6.45pm.

SwingTrain is an exercise to music class to the vintage vibes of swing, gospel, rhythm & blues and jazz – a marked difference to the electronic music that dominates the majority of cardio exercise classes. The fitness regime has been developed by Scott Cupit, the award winning dance teacher and entrepreneur whose pitch for Swing Patrol – the dance school and events company – secured investment on BBC Dragons’ Den. Duncan Bannatyne wanted to try swing in health clubs and Piers Linney was looking for ‘the Zumba of Swing’. SwingTrain launched this year under the guidance of investor Deborah Meaden, and local fitness instructor Carola Lange has been selected as the first SwingTrainer in South Birmingham.

The SwingTrain total body workouts are inclusive and suitable for all levels of fitness and coordination. No dance or fitness class experience is required whatsoever. Qualified SwingTrain fitness instructors lead participants through a series of fun, follow-along moves. The full body cardio workouts exercise legs, arms and core, as well as developing coordination and mental agility through memorable routines. SwingTrain session lasts for 30 minutes, or an hour, including warm-up and warm-down time, depending on whether you attend the full high-intensity work-out or the new gentler 30-minute 'Get Active' sessions.
