Other Support


As part of its early intervention programme BTU provides service user workshops designed to improve financial management skills and also well-being. Workshops are hosted by organisations (e.g. community / support groups or charities) and are often delivered as part of an existing service (e.g. service user forums or coffee mornings). Sessions are informal, lasting between 1 to 2 hours and can be tailored to the specific needs of your service users.

Over the years we have worked with a number of organisations and groups across Birmingham delivering client workshops including MS Society, Stetchford Foodbank, Creative support and Dyspraxia Association.

Workshops are delivered by experienced trainers and focused on empowerment giving service users the skills and confidence to manage their day to day lives.

If you have a venue and wish to book a workshop, please contact us via email or telephone detailing your requirements.

Free Workshop – Loan Shark Awareness

A loan shark is someone who lends money, they rarely give any paperwork and if repayments are missed they often use violence and intimidation to get their money back. Faced with this problem would you, your staff  or service users know what to do? A national, dedicated team is cracking down on loan sharks and we’d like to tell you more.

This free workshop available to organizations will give you more in-depth information about the project background, key things to look out for, the relevance of loan sharks in your community and a better understanding of information and intelligence. We will also show you the impact that loan sharks have on victims and communities, and crime and disorder. To book a free workshop for your organization Tel: 250 0781 or email office@btu.org.uk.

Collaborative working

To help us understand the needs of local communities and the different ways organisations work, we work collaboratively with a range of organisations in Birmingham, both on a one to one basis and as part of wider partnerships such as the Gateway to Birmingham Advice Services and Locality West Midlands Consortium (LINK). Through these we also deliver training sessions for staff and service users tailored around individual needs. We are always keen to develop in this area so if you have a project you would like us to become involved in, please get in touch.
