About the project

The Active Wellbeing Society (TAWS) is a community benefit society and cooperative working to develop healthy, happy communities living active and connected lives.

The Society was developed from the successful Wellbeing Service set up by Birmingham City Council in June 2015. They deliver so much in the community, including food justice, the Big Feed Project, cycling, walking, well-being, grow and connect (wildlife), physical activity sessions across different sports, and the clean air justice network.

VIY plans to create ramps to make the Mother Hub more accessible/inclusive. We will build a trellis to divide the space further, providing an area for films, workshops, and activities and keeping an area wild to increase biodiversity

Railings and woodchips will be added to cover and border the concrete path so it’s not slippy and has a more natural/appealing aesthetic.

We also plan to add a cover for the bike rack, a large communal moveable table, signage, an accessible grow space, an insect hotel, storage, and decoration.


This project aims to increase participation and engagement on the site and provide a space for volunteer projects.
