West Midlands Community Campus


West Midlands Community Campus

The West Midlands Community Campus is the culmination of the Youth Charter’s 28 years of the agency’s work in the region.


As a legacy of the 2002 Commonwealth Games and our ‘Connecting Communities’ programme, the organisation’s work has seen policy, projects, programmes and initiatives inspire sport for development and inclusion in the lives and communities in the West Midlands.

Heath Town Community Campus

The Heath Town Community Campus was developed between 2015 and 2017 in partnership and consultation with the local schools, community organisations and public sector agencies.

The Heathtown Community Consultation presented a unique insight into the challenges and opportunities presented within a community currently facing a very fragmented sport / physical activity lifestyle offer, with a lack of a truly coordinated effort that meets the needs of children, young people and the wider community.

The stakeholder consortia group provided an ideal platform from which to build a network of legitimacy and credibility that can lead to a greater delivery of policy, strategy and resources going forward. The need for a community leadership resource that delivers within a classroom, playground and beyond the school gate environment of provision has never been more required.

Local community partnerships are also critical in delivering a holistic physical activity offer. The establishment of a Heathtown youth and community forum would provide an ideal vehicle to assist the Black Country Make ability to develop a well governanced and operational agency provision.


The development of the Heathtown Community Campus portal provides an interactive platform that can help coordinate and deliver an effective, efficient and value for money offer that can map, track and measure the social, cultural and economic benefits of projects and programmes that would be delivered.

The Heathtown Community Audit consultation and efforts to date provide a significant opportunity in identifying the challenges and opportunities associated with an area of significant deprivation and youth inactivity as well as the future delivery of youth strategy following the youth review currently taking place.

As part of the Community Consultation the Why Sport "Future of Sport: Employment, Skills and Apprenticeships" conference was hosted at Molineux Stadium, home of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
