Who We Are

Providing wellbeing expertise since 2003.

We have been successfully improving the mental health of employees in businesses across the city of Birmingham through one-to-one listening and network and training events since 2003.

The BWA is an alliance of organisations working together in Birmingham so that each workplace will be among the ‘very best’, enabling every employee to flourish at work and beyond.



What's it all about?

The effects of the pandemic have highlighted the catastrophic scale of workplace ill health, and the negative impact this has had on people in the business community for decades.

After operating in stressful work environments that affected my career and personal relationships, I understand the challenges that can present themselves in high-pressured environments. This understanding informs the support the BWA offers individuals and organisational leaders.

I feel privileged to champion the positive wellbeing work of the BWA which builds on experienced listening and caring for the business community of Birmingham, since 2003. I want to see this legacy continue, and to grow so that it becomes a crucial part of the culture in Birmingham businesses.
