Neighbourhood Network Schemes (NNSs) are designed to support older people in Birmingham to connect with individuals, groups, organisations, activities, services and places in their local neighbourhood. They are an integral part of Birmingham City Council’s community social work model.
The Edgbaston Neighbourhood Network Scheme (ENNS) covers the following areas in the Edgbaston constituency:
- Bartley Green
- Weoley Castle
ENNS is led by Gateway Family Services and Age UK Birmingham. Gateway and Age UK are working with voluntary and community groups, social enterprises and local agencies to create a network of support in Edgbaston. The ENNS acts is a central co-ordination point and can offer support for volunteers and groups, including access to grants.

As Neighbourhood Network Scheme Lead, Gateway is co-ordinating the Edgbaston Constituency’s response to Covid-19. The Edgbaston NNS is now a central point of contact for people in need, and community groups that need help, in Edgbaston, Harborne and Quinton, throughout the crisis.
Our NNS team and local Link Workers are working closely with community groups like The Quinton and Oldbury Foodbank, and the B32 Group, whose volunteers are organising and delivering food, as well as local Councillors, to co-ordinate support across the area.
