Research will take place through July but we will avoid work in the school summer holiday period.

The project: What does good look like?’ in terms of the local economy, environment and community?

We are looking for community researchers to join this project funded by West Midlands Combined Authority. They want to better understand how individuals, groups and communities understand ‘inclusive growth’, what it means to them, and how together we might achieve it. This is an opportunity to help your own community, engage with West Midlands residents through research, and help shape WMCA’s understanding of inclusive society and economy.

Areas covered:

We are looking for individuals from the Birmingham area, Coventry and surrounds, and the Black Country, to do research in local neighbourhoods, and to engage with communities including different ethnic groups, identities, and in different locations.
