Birmingham has an array of smashing community projects that are engaging people in health and fitness activities. I have worked with two community groups in Balsall Heath that have done some excellent work at improving levels of fitness and engaging with local residents. Balsall Heath Healthy Living Centre was one of my first film projects, and through their hard work at piloting exercise sessions in the area, the Saheli Women’s Group was able to successfully attract funding to set up their own gym. I have worked with them on film and photography projects since 2006. To see some of this work have a look at their Media Gallery.
