Birmingham City Drive is a week of events, co-ordinated by iSE (Initiative for Social Entrepreneurs), designed to showcase the fantastic work social enterprises are doing across the City.

In 2015 and 2016 we had walks, talks, seminars, debates, workshops, a soup kitchen cook-in and history of philanthropy bike ride, all of which provided plenty of opportunity for everyone with an interest to experience and engage with social enterprise at first hand.

Each year through Birmingham City Drive we aim to encourage more people to:

  • Buy from social enterprises
  • Work for social enterprises
  • Volunteer for social enterprises
  • Invest in social enterprises
  • Start social enterprises
