This is wheelchair accessible with accessible toilets, and children are welcome though we cannot provide a creche facility.

Tom from Birmingham against the cuts will be talking about how a new generation of social housing provides and alternative to the cuts and to cuts in housing benefit, which threatens to make thousands homeless in Birmingham and hundreds of thousands homeless around the UK.
We will also be talking about the new Labour council’s plans for Birmingham housing. Labour have said that Birmingham needs 70,000 new houses by 2026, but have not said how this will happen.
This will be followed by around 30 minutes of discussion about the issue and what we can do about it.
After this there will be around 45 minutes for organisational and planning discussion about anti-cuts activities in Birmingham.
Please come along to this meeting, especially if you are concerned about cuts to housing benefit or the introduction of universal credit.
