Retrofit Balsall Heath is planning a day of tours, talks and teas to
mark our one year anniversary and celebrate our Retrofit journey
so far.
In June 2022, drawing inspiration from Balsall Heath’s unique
legacy of grassroots local democracy and the strength of positive
relationships between local faith communities, Retrofit Balsall
Heath secured agreement from Birmingham City Council for the
local community in Balsall Heath to tap LADS 3 funding to retrofit
700 local homes.
So far, nearly 200 homes have had work done to make them more
energy efficient, helping to tackle fuel poverty, health disparities,
and the climate crisis.
We have learned that “Retrofit” is more than a technical term for
insulating existing homes to make them fit for purpose and fit for
the future. It is a transformative concept for whole communities;
for community neighbourhoods and landscapes, and for individual
hearts and minds.
We hope to share our stories, lessons learned, joys and
We welcome practical, financial, spiritual accompaniment and
assistance for our next steps.
Please join us for our
Retrofit Open Day 2-6pm
Friday 30th June 2023
hosted by
zerocarbonhouse Birmingham – you can book here
