I honestly didn’t think that I would have the opportunity to take part in Project Brum at Birmingham City Council. Coming from Birmingham living in the community, after finishing my AS Level exams, I spent my first two days getting to know the people around me and what working on this Project meant to them. This allowed me to really see what the wellbeing service do for the first time and judging from a brainstorm of what I knew about the wellbeing service I knew a little.
Over the following days, I spent the mornings with the group learning about the type of service that is carried out by the wellbeing service and how this impacts the community, I really enjoyed learning about the different background to the service and what great success they have.
The time I spent during the week ha
s showed me the methodical and detailed approach the service undertakes to ensure that the community has what it needs.
